Last year I planted these two cherry trees in the rockwall garden and they both survived and are blooming now.
I have been outside at 6:30 a.m. every morning this week planting, digging and just enjoying all the garden work.
Alice asked me what I decided to plant around my crabapple tree (where I removed all that sedum a couple of weeks ago).
Well today I decided to dig up some creeping phlox and use that. I have tons of creeping phlox, so I can get all I need and it's free. At the nursery they charge $6.99 for a quarter flat of creeping phlox...that's about one small shovel full...I probably used about $100 worth already this morning. I will post a pic as soon as the crab is in full bloom.
Back outside ... can't waste my days off sitting in the house!
I am so glad you stopped by to visit my garden. I garden in lower northern Michigan (zone 5) in far less than ideal conditions. I have too many pine trees, too much shade, too many rocks, herds of hosta-munching deer and rabbits who think my lilly buds are gourmet appetizers. I am by no means an expert in horticulture or garden design--just an amateur with a shovel and a passion. My garden changes daily during the summer and I will be updating frequently.
During the winter months, I blog about my favorite cold-weather hobby--quilting and just my everyday musings.
I hope you enjoy your visit, and that you will come back soon.
