Finished The Butterfly Area

We’ve spent several days and beau·coos bucks and are finally “finished” with the designated Butterfly/Hummingbird area out front. This is the former vegetable garden. It’s nice to already have a water access. At least we didn’t have to go to the extreme of putting in water this year.

I bought one Orange Monrovia Cape Honeysuckle (above),  two Dipladenia Bush (Arbusto Diplandenia) one red and one pink, two lavender Butterfly Bush, and two Bottle Brush plants. Oh, and two Blue Berry bushes. There will also be an area set aside for different herbs to use in cooking. Fresh herbs are the bee’s knees!

 

 

Once the checkbook recovers from all the expenditures, since I have a proclivity towards noisy or flashy lawn ornaments, I want to add at least one wind chime … or two … or three … oh, and another statue. Statues help to “soften” the landscape.

The Bird Lady from the film “Midnight In The Garden Of Good And Evil” fame, wants me to share her thanks for stopping by. lol Time to go brew some hot tea and relax.
