Some work has begun on the back garden. There is a lot of shade garden and really only one full sun area, which is the back right section. I am pretty much getting rid of everything there so I can have my full sun plants, like roses and irises and the specialty cone flowers. Here is that section with the half dead shrubs and lots of ground cover.
Eventually I will have a garden bed coming up this fence as well, but this is a multi year project.
I had to dig up a bajillion daylilies. I moved some closer to the house since they can take partial shade. Here is the bed right now after I cut down the shrubs (which are in a pile to the right):
So much work to do! There is some green, though:
Daffodils and tulips. My rose bush might have made it, but I am not sure. It’s also too early to see if the razzmatazz survived, either. Blooms are coming, though:
This bed needs a walking path through it since it is so large. There seems to be a natural depression in it, which I think is where we will put some kind of path:
Sorta like that anyway 😀
I am glad I got a lot of that cleared out because my new rose bush shipped and will be here shortly!
If you heard a loud squee the other day, that was me when I got the shipping notice!
There is a lot of wildlife in the back yard as well. I saw a bunny – who darn well better stay out of the garden – and lots of different kinds of birds, including cardinals, nuthatches, woodpeckers and more. And squirrels, of course.
Eating food from the cardinal feeder. Eating all of it! Booger.
Here is hoping to warmer weather this weekend. We even had ****ing snow flurries yesterday – can you believe it? Not sure about riding, but I have my fingers crossed.
