Hello everyone. This weekend Peter and I have been very busy on our yard. I will upload some picture next week. By the time we finished today, it was too dark to take pictures. We are in the process of installing a barrier for our bamboo. I have most of the trench dug. We will need to finish that, but there is some structure that needs to be removed first. I'm planning on doing that next weekend. Luckily we are putting in the barrier now. If we had waited any longer it would have been a much harder project. Bamboo amazes me how fast it spreads and grows. Also, we went to the Clark County Home Garden and Idea fair, and that was a ton of fun. We were able to get almost all of the vegetables we are going to grow this year, and a number of other wonderful flowers and plants. Everything is really making our yard come together. I took a lap around our yard this evening, and it's becoming a little paradise.
Last weekend we took my parents up to Tsugawa Nursery for my Mom's birthday and she picked out a very nice shrub that I'm very curious about because of the bloom the tag described. I will have to check back with her in a few weeks to see how it is growing. It looked almost like a boxwood, but it said it had blue blooms. Very interesting. Peter and I also got some plants on that trip as well including a new rose for me call Koko Loco. I can't wait to see the blooms. They start as a creamy white and go violet. If it looks like the pictures I've seen It will be a wonderful addition to my rose garden. I wish I had another day to recover. It has been a lot of hard work.
I'm also getting some ideas together for my Koi pond. That will finish off the back yard when it is finished. It will include the pond itself, a stream, a garden studio, and a greenhouse. I know huge project, but we will be able to do it in small more manageable parts. I will have pictures as we go along. All and all a great weekend, and I'm looking forward to next weekend. Hope everyone had a weekend as fun as me.
