The bed across from my new Sun Garden is a bit of a disaster since we removed the tall straggly shrub that had been there for years. The Lily-of-the-Valley are trampled, the Peony lies flat and invisible against the ground, and instead of casting beautiful shadows the lighting shines starkly against the white wall.
I will move the Lily-of-the-Valley to the Moon Garden and the Daylilies to the driveway strip but am not sure what I want to replace them with.
Or at least I was not sure until last night.
I feel inspired today because while in the garden after dark last night I had the idea to move the 80 Blazing Star I put in the front garden last year (which do not get enough sun and are struggling) to help fill this space.
Below is how I more or less imagined them my front garden.
Clearly, not what I achieved.
Drastic changes are required, so up they come and into the Sun Garden they will go.
Their placement will allow me to stay true to my plans of having my NEW Sun Garden technically made up of only yellows, red and oranges (and bi-colours!).
Am I splitting hairs, differentiating between new and old portions of the Sun Garden?
Perhaps, but these are the trade offs we make with ourselves as (garden) designers.
Have you made any mistakes in your garden this summer that you intend to fix this fall?
