The original owners of my home were at best, sloppy when it came to the yard. Random fruit trees and flowering trees placed with no rhyme or reason anywhere. This has presented challenges but we have learned to work with these issues best we can.
One of my responses was to tear our the Yucca plant because I do not live in the southwest and have never understood fellow New Jerseyians planting such a thing here. I have also lost one of my larger sage plants to simple death. This has left the mound looking a touch bare as she was right in the middle.
As you can see in the photo above, this is a work in progress. On the right is the area where the yucca had called home and has left little babies sprouting up everywhere. While it did sprout pretty flowers, it intersected with the pear tree which was planted next to the mound, WHY???, and it just looked messy.
And finally, two shots of my rock garden area. I have impatiens in a pot and that vinca you see there came from a small plant that used to be in that pot. It grew out and spread worse than the oregano. I do like it though and have cut it back a bit. The purple flowers are so pretty. I also put some cuttings behind our hostas, but I did not take pictures. That will be for another time my dears. Please note the beautiful Buddha statue gifted to us from my brother. The placement of it is perfect.
And those are some of the areas I tend to around my yard. I do enjoy it though and wish I had the time and money to do some serious planning and gardening, but no matter. It is just a pleasure to walk out and see things in bloom.
