After a too late night on Saturday (I mean WAAAAAAY too late), i was very happy Sunday turned out as perfect as it did. Sunny, not too hot or humid, a nice breeze-all in all a perfect day to work outside. Dad went and bought two yards of untreated hardwood mulch, and we went to work moving it all (mostly) around back, as well as continued tilling and began to actually plant the White Garden. Have a look...
|This is how things were left as of Tuesday. The future White Garden all tilled, and the peonies in the Peony Border planted.|
|Mulch began to be moved around back, and then i took a quick break to start tilling the new "connecting" shade bed. I really hope to be dividing and planting in this bed by next weekend.|
|The new 'Mount Baker' lilac was the first thing planted in the White Garden.|
|We had enough mulch to do the Hydrangea Border, Peony Border, White Garden, and four smaller beds out front. The rest will be used in the new "connecting" shade bed...but we will need at least 3 more yards for the entire backyard.|
|Another view of the 'Mount Baker' lilac. I'll have to keep the spread in check a little, but once it is joined by a second, double white lilac I've been keeping my eye on, they should make a nice screen across the back of the garden.|
|And at long last, the three white bleeding hearts that i bought in hopes of being able to create this garden this year are in their permanent home.|
