The cool weather over the weekend made for a comfortable day for hubby to work at digging away at the defunct (love that word) spa and filling it to the rim with DIRT. Yup, dirt. Duhgall’s favorite drinking bowl is now a planter bed. Why? Well, the original owner to the house put this spa smack-dab in the middle of the patio – a very unsafe place for a spa.
A white Crepe Myrtle tree was planted in the center of the planter. Around the tree we planted white Impatiens and pink and white Dianthus. Of course, who do you think was the supervisor for the job?
Can you dig it, Fiona? Well, not DIG it, but do you like?
In the other flower bed, the red Penstemon is showing off quite nicely this year. I think it likes living with the Begonias and Queen Ann’s Lace (aka: wild carrot – and yes, it looooves to reseed itself!)
How does your garden grow?
