2008 - First Summer: Getting Started


Removing the river stone and a couple of the cedars.




Planted up with some hostas.



Wonderful gift of perennials given to me by my wonderful friend, Rita.



Expanding the garden, with Rita's gifts and a trunkload of perennials from good friends, the Bells (no photo of them before planting).



Back perennial border finished for 2008.



Border built around the outside of the pool.





Little back-step garden, after the deck was rebuilt. Many of the perennials left by the former owners were returned to this bed. Others moved to better places elsewhere on the property.

  1. Looks great! So cool that your friends gave you so many perennials. I have a few in my yard (siberian iris & circle flower)that were given to me by my hubby's aunt, so they mean so much more to me. Especially the iris because his aunt got them from his mom, who I never got the chance to meet.
