We dug out a new flower bed today and edged it with limestone and filld it with dark green and lilac gravel. It is in our front lawn and about 6 foot by 3 foot neat the top narrowing to 18 inches at the front. the back has a 125 pound dark green rock that slopes toward the front. It is in part shade. I am planting large caladiums behind in the rock and small ones in front. in the front of the bed I planted a white bleeding heart. I am thinking of putting in some vinca minor and columbine, the purple and white specie kind.
We marked out a new bed in the back as well. That is sun to part sun. In it will go balloon flowers, bachelor buttons, blue geraniums, blue petunias, and allyssum.
The daffodils are beginning to bloom in the beds we made last year. I can’t wait to see how this looks in a few months.
What will your garden be like this year?
