This and That . . .

This past year they redid the roads in Riverwood . . .
In the process they enfringed into our properties to create greater water runoff, blah, blal, blah . . .
One of my/our gardens was affected . . . (too close to the road) . . .
Bit by Bit I have been repairing, cleaning, weeding . . . get the point . . .
I transferred some Hosta from another area, rearranged some of the Day Lily’s . . .
Added a Hibiscus for color . . . and two Peony bushes . . . my first . . .
I do the planning, creating, Mister Irish does the digging . . .
He does have a good eye so I listen to suggestions . . . sometimes!
Myrtle ground cover is in this area . . .
It was destroyed during the construction as well as three large Burning Bush . . .
We may add a new Burning Bush to this mix . . .
This first pic is of what I had to deal with . . .
Weeds of all sorts, crab grass in bunches . . . it was a mess.


I tackled that part which took me a few days . . .

(projects always take longer than what we think . . .) (AGREE ??)
And this is where we are so far . . .



I have a large patch of Myrtle “out back” so I (we) will transfer some of it to this area.
I like my plantings all mixed up, entertwined, cuddled, friendly . . .
so this redone area has a ways to go before it has a comfy look like this below . . .


Next post will show you how much I love GREEN . . .
soon . . .
love

Well, it looks fabulous but I'm so sorry you had to go through all that in the first place. Reminds me of the tree situation only worse, in a lot of ways, I think. And hard work to repair. Especially when it's as hot as it is. Not complaining, just observing!

Your "greenery" always looks so beautiful..Nice assortment of plantings..Mollie loves crab grass..she could have helped you with that..the roots would still be there though..Takes longer because we're older??? I almost can't do that stuff anymore..Have to do it very slowly..take my time....I hate that!! .Nice to have a digger..Hope you had a good weekend..
