Amazing…..

Things are coming together. The back yard is looking mighty awesome this Spring! The Viburnum plicatum Mariesii (to the left in the picture below) and the Formosa Azaleas (to the right) are my favorite Spring bloomers! After 10 years of rehabbing this old garden I think this is the best! In the background of the picture is the Kwanzan Cherry, which is finishing up it blooming cycle.Spring Garden

Some new things have been added and many, many old plants were salvaged and after major rehabilitation have become great showpieces. These old-fashioned hydrangeas all came from an old and overgrown plant I found behind the storage shed.

Many trees removed. This area had five large trees removed. In season, it is full of wildflowers and daisies.

Many pounds of wildflower seeds planted. Along the street I have a mixture of wildflowers and daylilies.
