New bed

Yesterday morning, Bubba from the Natural Gardener delivered 2.5 cubic yards of Hill Country Garden soil.

We moved it into the new bed and got it planted. It looks better in real life, but here is my attempt at capturing it.

The main players are possumhaw, Gregg’s mistflower, Gulf Coast muhly, and yarrow. There are a few other things thrown in there…. pigeonberry, ferns, Gregg’s salvia, Texas tuberose, and twistleaf yucca to name a few. I tried to choose perennials with year-round color. I’m excited to have some wildlife habitat and food in the back yard, and to have some flowers to photograph on bloom day!

    Looks great. New beds are just so wonderful- I guess it is the feeling of potential and the lack of weeds.

    I’m getting a load of Hill Country Garden Soil tomorrow! Your new bed looks fresh and full of possibility. I look forward to your new blooms on Bloom Day.

    How exciting! It looks great already. Can’t wait to see how it progresses.
