Intervention, Part 2
I am trying to re make my perennial garden, which has suffered greatly from a lack of gardening love.
Well, actually, not so much a lack of love as it has been a lack of time.
Part of it has been the fact I was trying to do too much. My planning, or lack thereof, was erratic at best.
Time to simplify.
I want to have some depth and height in there, so I am thinking along our fence line, I am going to plant some more shrub like plants. A nice addition would be some evergreens. My personal preference is hemlock, which will be just the right depth and coloring for the back.
I love peonies, and their flowers are magnificent, and have done quite well in my garden. I think by adding another two peonies will add some more beautiful flowers to my garden. I believe fully that if they do well, its an omen of garden success.
Between the peonies, I want to plant my gladiolus bulbs. These flowers are the back bone of most floral arrangements I make, so this is a must in my garden. They are glorious, luminous, beautiful flowers. If the peonies are 3 feet apart, I can fit a few dozen bulbs in there.
