Nick and Carlos finished filling the beds with the (most delicious dark chocolate cake) soil at 2pm on Friday and I went right to work planting the garden, finishing up around 2pm on Saturday. I took a break to sleep while dark. But as early as I could see, I returned to the joyous task.
The cool bed has blue and purple flowers (I hope) but the foxglove and delphiniums are not ready to flower, so I can't say what color they are. Of course the foxglove won't be blue, but it will be tall so I put those along the back. Salvia, several varieties, hardy geraniums, veronica, baptisia and a few petunias in this bed. But plenty of space for more blue flowers as the shopping continues. Little sprouts of zinnias fill the cubbies in back but the front cubbies are still empty.
Nick moved soil to the front of the street facing bed so I could plant daylilies and more perennials between. We've moved the hydrangeas and hostas to the shade already, but they will have their own 'berm' against the fence in the near future.
But first this pile of debris has to go...
