My swing is at the back of this area. You can see I have 3 crepe myrtles (you can see 2 here). Two are Natchez which are white and I think they bloom really full. I think the on in the middl is pink. I thought all 3 were white but at least the pink on ended up in the middle. I finally have a little shaded area back here. I am planning to go to a garden show on May 7th for our County Extension Master Gardeners and I hope to get several hydragneas. My favorite plant......You have to understand before Ivan rolled through here (hurricane) I had a forest in my back yard and I lost all but 7 trees. So I went from gardening in full shade to full sun.
I need a little more pinestraw here.
I have some daylillies here and mexican petunias.
I added a new area the other day. After many years of shade in my backyard Hurricane Ivan turned it into a no shade garden. I recently discovered a small area that gets some shade. I wanted more Hydragneas which are my favorite plant. My great grandmother had two large bushes in her front yard. They have the most beautiful blooms and are great for cutting or drying.
Here are some examples of the plant.
Last Saturday was the Master Gardener sale and my goal was to buy some good hydragneas and a few white plants also for a bit of a moonlight garden as well.
There are a few areas I did not show you but you will be seeing more on my garden over the spring and summer months. I will keep you updated as new things bloom.
