I get all excited over these. Last year I looked everywhere for them and there was not one in our entire town. Same thing the previous year. By chance I happened to spot them in the HD last night.
Do you know what they are?
14 very heavy pebble-topped concrete pavers.
The exciting part is that by the end of the day, they should be a new strolling path through the far end of one of my arbor gardens. I am thinking right about here:
It will connect to a path already in the back section.
to give you a better idea of where this is , here is a shot from the front end which will look more familiar to you. This path will connect just behind the arbor--and let's hope the design flows a bit better than my drawing. It should be a bit more curvy.
So as soon as it gets daylight, I will be out there removing plants again. Then the fun part of replanting will begin. Right now I have masses of daylilies and asters in that area. Once the path is in, everything changes. The area becomes its own mini garden within a larger garden and I will get to design a whole new layout. That's the part I love to do. I will probably buy a few new plants and will shop my own property for everything else. At the moment I have no idea what I will find as my property is pretty well shopped already.
This is about the worst time to be digging up my garden as the best blooming is just about to begin. Ah well, I have to do it when I am off work and this happens to be the week we are both off. I will have DH's much-needed muscle power as I am getting weaker by the year. Not too long ago I dug and placed those heavy pavers myself. I could probably still do it, but it would take me a lot longer!
I do enjoy my strolling paths so all the effort is worth it to me. This will be the fifth path through these two gardens.
Of course, I will be showing you the progress as it happens.
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.
