Rock Garden Progress

I will try and replace these photos later with better ones taken with real camera. These were using camera phone.

Rock Garden Soil Mix

Finally decided enough digging and put the soil in. Read a lot of different "how-to's" for rock gardening and decided to do peat, sand, rocks, moisture control Miracle Gro about 1:1:1:1 ratio. Probably more peat then the others but close.

Well I realize it's hard to say they look great but I like this better than before. I like that you can see the trunks that remain and their unique shapes.

Lori Graham...the next topiary artist?

OK originally she thought she might shear them in the shape of bumble bees or big fluffly clouds and I must admit I ruined that. I made this big gouging cut and was relegated to picking up branches and such (4 garbage cans full and still more left). But hey I like this better then they were before! One very good reason now when I take pictures of the house and want to morph it, it's even easier to see what lies behind them!


Our sort of plan perhaps we should have somehow painted it on with spray paint. This topiary stuff is hard!
