Anyyyyyway, my Schubertii has been spared, and the individual flowers are now opening.
This is the walkway I referenced in my last post.
It leads from the driveway to the front door, and the gate on the other side, just for reference.
The area under the ornamental cherry tree is where the majority of the deaths are happening.
I'm trying all sorts of things to keep her out of there.
I dug an old wheelbarrow out of purgatory.
It was here when I bought the house, and I decided to drill holes in it and plant it.
I put it over the old Magnolia stump, where the big barrel that rotted used to sit. It blocks one of the main thoroughfares.
So far, I stuck in an Ajuga and a few Coleus.
The other side of the tree, closer to the fence, is where I think I'm gonna stick in the tomato cages.
At least until things can get a hold on life.
I adopted a Rodgersia podophylla over the weekend, and it went into the danger zone. If she shreds it, I'll kill her.
You can see the partially massacred Hosta in the background, with more scattered leaves in the foreground.
Here are some better shots of the Maple I whacked off.
If it doesn't fill in after this, it's going bye bye.
The Tina Rose is starting to bloom now.
Check out what's goin' on across the street.
They removed ALL the lawn, up in the yard, and in the parking strip.
And last, the Pacific Coast Iris I adopted last year got one flower, and I adopted a new one last weekend, that was already in bloom.
This is last year's.
And my new baby, that I stuck in front of the Hyssop, aka, Agastache foeniculum 'Golden Jubilee', is called 'Drives You Wild.'
Aren't they pretty?!
I love adopted babies.
Okay, off to accomplish something.....
