The little side garden beside the shed has started to come together rather nicely. If my readers recall, I had manage to get some more work done on it last year. The bed still needs some work done to it. When I first started the flower bed, I had not done any real planning and some areas of the bed needs work. The little patch of Rudbeckias in that bed have never done well and I will dig them up and rework the soil in that area. Next to the wall of the shed are two or three different varieties of hostas planted in the ground; there is also a large container that has some plantain lilies (hostas). I redid the plantain lilies and meant to do an article on them; I may wait until they bloom. In front of the holly bushes to the right are some daylilies.

The Little Side Garden

Above is a photograph I took today of the current state of the little side garden. In the far back is the grill area I built last year. You can revisit that blog to see that project at this link: a-place-for-the-barbecue. In the foreground to the right you can see the bog I built for the irises sent to be by a very dear friend. They are doing very well this year as well as the spider lilies he sent me and I am hoping I will see them bloom. You can revisit the bog project at this link: building-a-bog-for-irises-and-spider-lilies. Also, at the tree beside the barbecue is the stone seat that I struggled to move by myself last year. You can revisit that project at this link: moving-the-small-boulder-in-the-side-garden. As you can see in the photo, I have not installed the table that I plan on adding to the side garden; however, I hope to have that up before the summer arrives. I still need to decide exactly where I want to put the table since it will be installed on a steel post buried into the ground.

Note: If you click on the photograph above, a larger image will open in a light box. The image is 1024 px wide (scaled to fit your monitor resolution) so it may take a bit to load.
