Is there anything more exciting to a gardener than a new flower bed? The idea of a planting space full of fluffy, freshly amended soil ready to be planted made me giddy with anticipation. The new flower bed is actually an extension of a current flower bed that parallels the street. We extended it so that it now exists where there used to be driveway.
This is what the space looked like in November of 2009.
Iris, Sedum, Verbena Bonariensis, Rudbeckia, and Purple Coneflower. There are a few more deer resistant plants that I’d like to add that I’ll need to buy. (Note – I regularly spray Liquid Fence on my Mums, Sedum, Rudbeckia, and Purple Coneflower as the deer sometimes feed on these.)
