It has been a very wet late spring here in Maryland. Last weekend we had devastating floods and its raining again today.
I thought it would be a good time to get some foundation planting done.
Charlie took the 3 leftover Blue Rug junipers from last year’s plant order and planted them on the rise between the road and out front lawn. They should fill in to cover the entire area — 6 to 8 feet per plant.
The grass is coming up nicely but Charlie still intends to spread a little more seed.
In the mean time Charlie moved one Brass Buckle ilex on the west side of the house to fill in a hole where another had died. This Japanese holly grows in a mound from 12″ to 18″ tall and wide.
Then he filled in the ends with some purple salvia plants. I bought 3 different varieties: Burgundy Candles (1), Mainacht (1), Marcus (2) .
I think I’ll go back to the local nursery to pick up a few more to really punctuate the each end of the row.
Tomorrow I’m going to try my best to finish hanging the pink tile bathroom wallpaper.
I have only 4 pieces remaining.
Also hoping Charlie will reset the toilet in the same room. He removed it earlier in the week and wrestled it into the tub so it wouldn’t be in my way.
In the mean time Sug has ordered a dog run which will be delivered on Monday. We’ll try to set it up when we get home from work. She selected one with a cover because we have hawks, eagles, and vultures in the neighborhood which might get an idea to attack our small dogs.
Hoping to have a fruitful weekend. Wishing it were longer.
