I have had such a busy week and this week looks like it will be the same. I like to be busy, but not too busy. I am sure you all know what I mean.
Anyway, thanks for the comments last week. I read and appreciated every one even if I did not email you to say so.
Today I went right from work to Home Depot where I found some great bargain shrubs/grasses.
I am posting pics of the labels of all of them. This is for my own benefit. Next year when I wonder what I planted, I can look back here and find out.
The tallest grass is switch grass:
I am very excited about this lilac shrub, Miss Kim:
I love fountain grass in my summer containers. This perennial version looks beautiful in the name tag.
I bought two of these dwarf Midnight Wine Weigela.
If any of you have any of these plants, I would love to hear what you think about them. I probably won't plant them until the weekend, so if you have any suggestions on companion plants, I would love to hear that, too.
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.
