Plants are In!

Teenie wanted to show everyone what has happened in the garden these past few weeks. She loves walking on the labyrinth (and eating the compost in the dirt).

Portions of the labyrinth are slowly filling in. We are going to fill the gaps with dirt or some other material like decomposed granite.

Here is the entry to the labyrinth. We planted Japanese blood grass on both sides along with some blue fescue grasses. They are slowly bouncing back from the terrible neglect and abuse they suffered while living at a horrible nursery up the street.

Our top, right corner now has life. We planted our puya plant in the top middle and surrounded it with wild indigo. We have brick barriers up because the dogs use the labyrinth as their daily exercise ring and I want the plants to survive.

Only 2 of the 3 sage plants were shipped to me because they were out of stock on one. I will be buying the third shortly. I hope they grow big and lush someday.

I am very happy to report that my canna is very happy in its new location. It seems to grow a new leaf everyday.

We will be mulching and filling in the inner portion of the labyrinth soon. We are still searching for more used brick. We paid for the first set of bricks, but the last two groups we have found on craigslist for free.
