See those two-tiered planters in the back? I am not happy with them at all. This is the second year I have used them and so far I am not impressed. I REALLY dislike seeing the container. I planted the top with ducks feet trailing coleus, thinking it would trail (as its name implies). So far its trailing abilities leave much to be desired. The bottom coleus is beginning to get tall. Perhaps they will end up tall enough to cover the top container. I want all the colelus to intertwine and cover all parts of the container. Is that too much to ask?
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.
