So second week into a blog post series and I am already going to deviate from my title. Yikes! But with not much going on and it being planting season I thought I would share what we are working on as well as ask for YOUR help!
Obligatory weekly photo of the garden. The grass seems to be the only thing showing real growth! Ha! I hope our lawn guy, Jason, comes soon!
But the real reason for the landscaping post… I have been talking about my front landscaping, and my dislike for the lack there of, for years now. Two years ago I was given some gorgeous hydrangeas and planted them under our dining room window. But the western sun has proved to be to direct on them once summer hits. I am all about low maintenance and had read about how knockout roses were tolerant of the direct sun. So last week after a trip to the nursery with grandma the kids came home with roses for me! I was excited!
But here is my question for you… Where do I move the hydrangeas to? I want to save them but they need shade. My two choices are: 1) Under my office window (left part of the house in this photo)
2)Or in the backyard along the back fence where my peonies are.
My first thought was #2 since I really wanted uniformity all along the front of the house. BUT I will risk killing my favorite flower, the peonies, if I replant now (just as they are about to bloom.)
Your recommendations are appreciated!!!
Last year I got a old fashioned (looking) mailbox for my birthday! We will make it pretty with some annuals this year.
