Garden Digression

I wish this was a better photo. Remember our big record snow storm here in February? Well, I lost a tree on the other side of the yard that shaded azaleas, hydrangeas and ajuga(that stuff is expensive). Anyway, the loss of the tree changed up the whole micro-climate so we are moving those plantings to more hospitable locations around the property so they can escape the brutal Texas summer sun.

We decided to embrace the newly sunny location and get some great color going. First thing will be to install a fence on this side to correspond with the one already in place by the driveway (seen in photo). Climbing Pinkie roses have loved it there for two years. Big variegated privets will anchor the bed and after that we'll just see what would be fun for perennials. Flexibility is the name of the game here. Got any ideas?
