Pic of the Day--Garden tour 25

Postby Hank Zumach » Mar 08, 2007 11:14 am

Hi All--We have three circular shaped beds in our south lawn that are about 8'X10'. These two pix are of both ends of the east (uphill) bed. The most prominent hostas are montana 'Aureomarginata' and Sun Power.

I like them too - but knowing me.....in a few years the space between them would become gardens too. :wink:

Hi--I had the "empty" space all planned out but when I showed the plan to Betty.............I suppose that some would say that reason took over. :lol:
