No that photo was not taken today. It was taken last year. I dig out some grass from our backyard last summer to make a new flower border. I mostly had annuals there last summer, because I could not figure out what perennials I should have there. It is a shady place, but biggest problem is that there are so many plants to choose from.
I need something tall, something small and something in between. I'm thinking this is my tall: Common Solomon's seal and this is one of the in betweens: old-fashioned bleeding-hear. Allready on the flower bed I have one Christmas rose, I could get more of those. Also there is the Lilium martagon or Turk's cap lily, shown in the picture above. Only one of those grew last summer, but now it seems the rest are growing too. I also love ferns and would like to have a few.
The flower border I have is not big so I don't need many plants, actually the less I have the better it's probably going to look. Need to pick my favourites, soon!
