While we all wait for the nice weather, and something new to post about, I thought I'd add a post to continue my "My Garden's Progression" list in the sidebar.
This bed, at the front of our house had river stone mulch and four cedars when we moved in. The cedars weren't in the best of shape and there was one lone hosta in there (you can't see it in the picture), but it still remains and has been identified as a 'Gold Standard'. I love it. You can see it in the front(ish) left of the third picture.
We removed the stone and the cedars and replaced the bed with better soil, some more hostas and cedar mulch.
We added the limestone walkway in the fall of 2009 and planted it up with 'walkable' plants like Irish Moss and a couple of different types of thyme. Lots more hostas were added to both sides of the garden, as well as some colourful plants like bee balm, monkshood and foxglove.
The walkway leads from our front door to our garage. We shovelled the walkway this winter, so I'm waiting to see how the little plants in between the limestone fared over the winter.
