To the bed that borders the woods facing the front of my house I added Sweet woodruff, lantana, ligularia, climbing hydrangea, cone flowers, and coreopsis. This area is beginning to fill in nicely as well . Three dwarf 'diamond dazzle ' white crape myrtles adopted from last year's Fall clearance have started to bloom.
I hope to get my backyard fenced in this Fall so that I won't have to worry about deer and rabbits. I have plans to add a vegetable plot, plant an Asian pear to go along with my other two fruit trees -a Japanese persimmon and a Nectarine .
The garden centers have already started stocking Fall bulbs. I have big plans to add a lot of Spring-flowering daffodils, more Hellebores , Primrose and violas.
Farewell August, hello September.
