Project Update: The Backyard
Of course looking at it in the photo, it's not so impressive, but it is, in fact, progress.
I finally put in the rock border and moved around a couple of plants. From left to right we have a fern (that was a gift three years ago from friends), an impatient (started from a cutting that the kid received at her birthday party), a rabbit ear and a red hot poker plant (also from cuttings from her birthday party). I need some sort of ground cover, I am realizing, but I think that once the plants bulk up, they will fill up the space nicely.
The vine that is snaking off the the right is a dying pumpkin plant. Two weeks ago that thing had taken over our ENTIRE backyard. I cut it back like crazy because I just couldn't stand it any longer and I don't know if our two pumpkins are ever going to ripen, but so be it. The wifey hates the broken planter thing on the right.
Don't tell her I said so, but from this angle, I get her point.
Ho, ho, ho, green giant,
