I've Changed My Mind ...

I'm going to rip it all out: annuals, perennials, ornamental grasses, bulbs, shrubs, roses, daylilies ... you name it. I'll resod in both front and back. I'll plant some nice wax-leaf ligustrums as foundation plantings; against the fences, some red tip photinias should look just grand. Mondo grass as groundcover in one area and Asian Jasmine in another. Add some cheery red, white and pink begonias and I'll be good to go.

Who needs a beautiful garden anyway?

I wasn't fooled for a minute! There's no way you would do that unless you were entering the Witness Protection Program.

Hey, the Head Gardener is going to be really upset if she sees all that.

Happy April Fool's Day!

You are such a tease...I was just about to grab my wheelbarrow and head over for some wonderful freebies! As they say...One man's (Gardner's) trash is another man's (gardner's)treasure (future paradise). Hee Hee!

I think you need some garlic chives as an accent, along with mint and autumn clematis.~~Dee
