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.

Lovely use of the words. Your peonies are magnificent!

Nice post - good luck with the bulbs. For the sake of bees and butterflies we are letting our garden run wild this year.
