The last day of my Garden Tour I will be showing some new areas I'm developing. The first area I started two years and I'm dedicating it to mostly native plants. It's really coming along nice. I planted lots of tiny bare root shrubs and trees such as Chokecherry, Golden Currant, Blue Spruce, Service Berry and Elderberry. Last year I added two Maples, a Locust and a plum. This Spring I went completely nuts and planted some Lilacs and Viburnum. There's going to be a trail through the middle and hopefully it'll be all shady and woodsie.
Here's another new area. I've planted lots of shrubs such as different varieties of Ninebark, Lilac, Viburnum, Blue and Alberta Spruce and Summersweet. There are two groupings of shrubs and there will be a pond between them. Foxsun's grave is in the shade of the apple tree behind the little shrubs. To the left of the picture, in the distance, is the big barn and the little horse barn. I'm still planting shrubs in this area. I try to do a little everyday.
We completed the latest project on Sunday. Here's William bringing a large basalt rock in that Brad had drilled a hole through.
Father and son team.
It was important to set it right so the water wouldn't run in the wrong direction.
William seems to know what he's doing.
They plumbed it and now we have a nice little waterfall.
