I have a bunch of top soil to dig into the front garden and I am planting some limelight hydrangeas.
We had our two large rhododendrons removed and have an area to redesign and plant.
I like mass plantings and repeats of a colour or plant dotted throughout the beds.
Several limelights are already established and I love their limey loveliness so I am adding more.
There will be some variegated hosta plants too...
and I am envisioning some white tulips or perhaps some lime parrot tulips but they will have to wait until I get the bigger pieces of the plan in place.
I plan to plant snowdrops randomly throughout the bed.
I adore snowdrops and am so elated when they show their lovely white blooms.
These are the variety that grow in The Humble Bungalow Garden.
They make a lovely wee bouquet.
I brought home a few packages of these from the nursery today.
(thankfully they are deer resistant!)
The nursery is gearing up for fall
clearing out annuals and some perennials
it looked rather bare.
There are bins full of bulbs and though I am very tempted I decided to go back another time
after I have finished this weekend work.
The weather forecast is for rain so I'll be mucking about in my boots
hair pulled back in a scrunchie
dressed in old jeans a white T-shirt
and a hoodie.
It is me at my most un-glamourous
and I guarantee my face will be smeared with dirt.
I just might wear pearls.
You never know who might be walking by!
A girl can dream!
What are you doing this weekend?
