This is at the garage entrance looking toward the same picket fence road garden.
And this is the picket fence garden. It is planted with a Ninebark and 2 Golden Cypress Mophead shrubs. Since the shrubs are still small, I filled the garden in with red and pink dahlias and J's favorite flower, marigolds.
I am happy to report that all of the Limelight Hydrangeas that I planted last fall are doing great.
I put three of them in the old apple tree border.
Same area looking in the opposite direction toward the picket fence road garden.
Did you notice all of the sedums just beginning to turn pink in my driveway borders? I have dozens of them. This is next to the sidewalk to the front door looking toward the old apple tree border:
A few feet to the right looking in the exact spot where the apple tree stood. We are loving living without that tree there. This is the first time in over a quarter century that we have not had to pick up apples every day in late summer.
