|Aurinia Basket of Gold|
The daffodils behind it were deadheaded two days ago and the Clematis Jackmanii on the trellis is busy sending out climber tendrils and lots of leaves.
The entire landscape is in a sort of flux as I attempt to figure out how to arrange beds so they are in bloom throughout the year. Currently each of my seven perennial beds have blooms in Spring but once the bulbs have faded there will be patches of no bloom. Something I need to remedy.
One bed that is in transition is the Herb bed. Currently, the few herbs I have share this bed with a mugo pine, daylily, sedum, and a few bulbs. I had planted creeping thyme here a few years ago to fill in a huge space. It did it so well that I had to move a few plants that it was choking out. I am in the process of removing it and adding Chamomile, mint, rosemary and maybe a few other herbs. The bed will eventually reach out further into the yard as my knowledge and abilities matures.
One of the many things I love about gardening is it is a never-ending proposition. The 'look' and 'feel' of the garden will change both seasonally and yearly.
