We finished the backyard too. We just needed to do some cleanup and replant things we brought from the front.
Sheri gave me some agapanthus a few years ago so we put them in a spot and babied them....then we bought a few more, divided them all and created this bed.
Bunbun was a gift from my other sister, Page...doesn't she look lovely here!
Chanticleer looks quite handsome next to our rosemary.
The tray on his head is for birdseed but the birds use him as a teeny birdbath instead. They sit in the gardenias and take turns.
Our gardenias were about 8 feet tall so after they finished blooming, we chopped them back by half.
I managed to get a nice bowl full of the last gardenia blooms...and the house smells heavenly.
Remember this post? Oh my gosh how gorgeous our yard was.
Sadly, we had to remove the lattice because of the willow tree we planted a couple years ago.
I really missed my wildflowers so I devoted this corner bed to them. I had saved a huge envelope of seeds and planted them yesterday.
I can't wait to see all the blooms with my angel in amongst them. It sounds silly but I know this will be my favorite part of the yard.
Other than a few touches, we are pretty much done. We have a few plants we haven't put back in the ground yet. We are holding them back and waiting to see if the plants we divided survive. If they do, I'll have more to share. Now maybe this week, I can get a little crafting done.
Hoping you all have a happy week....
