I do love triangular plantings, don't you?
I have a fairly large Golden Privet in my rockwall garden. I really don't like digging them up from there and moving them just when they are getting big enough to make a statement, but if I buy one, it will be way too small.
So today I decided to dig it out. About noon, I checked the weather channel and it appeared that I had a good hour before it would rain.
Never trust the weather channel.
It began raining within fifteen minutes after I got outside. I decided to stay out and at least get the daylilies removed (2 wheelbarrow loads). Since I was already wet, I thought I may as well get the hole dug and filled with water. I bet the neighbors wondered why I was hauling out the hose while it was raining. :) I was probably out in the rain for about 25 minutes.
I was thoroughly soaked when I came inside!
The rain stopped after about 45 minutes and I went right back out (still in my wet clothes) to finish the planting.
Here it is all finished. The Golden Privet is not as tall as the one on your right, but I think it will catch up in a short time.
From this angle, both of them ended up behind a tree. I did not even plan that, but I like that symmetry.
A few days ago I cut down the Lamb's Ear because it was already flopping.
I really do not like floppy plants. As soon as they begin to fall over, I cut them back almost to the ground.
I am amazed by all that is blooming so early.
In a normal year, I would not have any of these lilies blooming until about July 4.
This year everything is at least two weeks early.
By the end of July I won't have anything left to bloom!
