The rains are about to start and plants are coming on sale at the nurseries…so here we go. I want a “river” of white hydrangeas along the shady slope in the back garden. I managed to find a few Hydrangea arborescens ‘Annabelle’ and Hydrangea paniculata ‘Limelight’ that will fill the space nicely. I struggled out many an invasive spirea, self-sown sword ferns and a ridiculously-inappropriate-for-such-a-shady-spot Wiegela and popped in 4 nice new mid-sized plants to go with the three further over to the left, out of the photo, that I’d planted in the spring. Making it my own!!
The deer have been nibbling last fall’s Hydrangea plants a bit…here’s hoping I can keep them at bay. I never see them in the back garden. But the little bits of nibbling here and there indicate they know when I’m not here!!
