That one tulip in front of the spirea, I guess I should pull out. It is a left over from previous years. There used to be a whole clump of them but they have either died or sucumb to the shovel.
When I walked through the back garden Idecided I couldn't stand the empty space in front of the big jar. Last year I tried some Huechera 'Snow Angel' but it couldn't take the drought and or the deep shade here. I got an inspiration to move some of these yellow hostas over here. They were moved from an area where they were being taken over by some mondarda. They were in too much sun too. Sometimes during summer they would wash out to almost a pale white color. I hope they like their new home. I wish I could tell you what kind of hosta this is because it is such a good little hosta for me. It was a birthday gift from my Dearly Beloved several years ago. It has been used as filler in pots, planted in places where I have difficulty growing something. It hasn't let me down yet. I hope it continues its work as I really need something that will grow here under these trees in dry shade with lots of roots from larger bushes etc.
When you take pictures of areas you can sure see what needs to be done. I guess I need to move the left over fence parts into the barn so they won't be so unsightly. I also see that if these yellow hostas live they will be about the same color as the windows on the barn. Ha... that wasn't planned but I think I like it.
This time of year it almost doesn't pay to walk around in the garden. One thing always leads to another. Back out front I discovered that the rugosa rose has almost died out. I don't know what has caused this but my next day off, weather permiting I will have to yank this bad boy out. A gardeners work is never done.
