Last week I showed you my side yard. Today I'm sharing my back yard, which is still a work in progress.
We planted three oak lead hydrangeas last year. Our back yard is very shady. They did produce blooms last year, but I'm tricky. Us girls enhance our appearance with makeup, why can't plants. Those two big beautiful flowers are silk. Told you I was tricky.
Astilbe and impatients line the back of the porch. An old metal fireplace screen helps fill in the concrete wall. The white flowers on the astilbe are real, but will soon turn brown. After they turn brown, I will take a can of florist spray and spray the flowers to give them color the rest of the summer. Take a piece of cardboard to prevent overspray. Tricky again.
This flower bed take more work pulling out than planting. I can supply the whole neighborhood with these yellow flowers. I don't know what they are called.I just divided my lungwort. At first I didn't like this plant, but inherited it with the house. I do like that it will last a really long time as a cut flower. I've had potted plants that didn't last that long.
