Dirty Again


I had another glorious day in the sun, playing with my garden beds. These are my feet and legs after I finished. Pig Pen strikes again!

I dug up the five ralphiolepis we had in the front beds and replaced them with three golden euonymus and two red-tipped photinia. The ralphiolepis were straggly and struggling. They had to go.

Before:

After:

I'll have to keep my eye on all the new shrubs as they can grow very tall (anywhere from 6 feet - 15 feet!) and wide quickly but I'm confident I can keep them trimmed and beautiful.

Afterwards, I took the tags that came with the plants and taped them to copy paper, slid the paper into a sheet protector, and added it to my landscaping three-ring binder. I'm SUCH an organizational geek! It's really quite scary.

You did a remarkable job...again. Jeff and I were amazed at the size of the root bulbs of the bushes you removed; you are one strong woman...in strength and spirit. Your beds are beautiful.
