Yes, I’m back with another blog post. Why am I not outside you wonder? Well I was, I went out a little after 8 am and worked like a gardener possessed, but then the weather came. Which in all honesty was probably the only thing that was going to get me to stop working outside as, I’m a little hard headed like that.
I have in my head a million and one garden plans. I committed myself (and probably should be committed!) to spending as much time outside as I possibly can. Today I tackled the wood chip pile and the spreading of the woodchips behind the pond. We had some trees taken down and they asked could they leave the woodchips and I said sure. At first I was going to use them for the paths, but decided that was way too much work. Ha! When I started out this morning I was happy and full of get up and go, go, GO! By the time I got done my go was gone and I was actually glad the rain was starting!
I started at the front end down by the bog.
I worked my way back around to the front by the steps of the gazebo.
Finished it all off by stacking those fieldstones. Now I’ve got a couple places that need a little more but wow did it make a huge difference in how it looks over there.
I decided that along this edge I’m going to plant some of the hosta that are being relocated as well as woodland poppies and some ragwort. This area is a tough place for anything to grow so I need plants that are tenacious! You can also see that I started my log edging
That’s sort of cool looking isn’t it, I think it makes a good edge too. For some reason I look at it and it makes me think of a stream bed coming out of a mountain. I’m contemplating getting some of those blue glass stones and some blue glow in the dark stones and filling it in with them. Hmm, maybe I’ll put a tiny gnome or faerie nearby, maybe even a faerie door….
