I was also able to get some other plants from mom that she needed thinned and moved. On this side I have started my patch of thorn-less raspberries. This will provide shade and yummieness as well.
On the left side of the garage I have planted Lavender. Even though this is not my most favorite plant it gets big quick and have a pretty color. Mom has a few more volunteers that I am going to put in front of the siding.
I am almost done with my front garden too. I put day lilies in my pots and then added more iris and the rhododendron. The iris will bloom earlier in the spring than the lilies, rhododendron and rose. This should give me good color throughout.
Right along the edge I am going to get some tulip and daffodil bulbs put in. That is all I have left to do. It should be really pretty and I can't wait for spring to see it.
I did put just a few hollyhocks right by the garage. I will have to keep them in check but they will add a nice punch of color and height. :)
I thoroughly wore out Mom. Myself too, but I am willing to deal with the pain if it mean I get a bunch of big Lilacs. :D On another note, Nik is on his first scout camping trip here in North Idaho. He is headed to Harrison Lake and has an actual hiking backpack that is almost bigger than him. LOL He is going to do great and hopeful come back with all of his digits intact. Here's hoping.
