While finishing the dishes and staring out the window at our Douglas Fir (a corner that never sat right with me) I finally saw it. A line or a trail if you will in the soil between the Douglas Fir and the Viburnum. Ah yes! A dry stream bed and a purpose for all my rocks!
|The digging begins! In the spring I hope to purchase a load of stones for the bottom of the dry stream bed. I will also be adding and transferring plants here from my rock garden come spring.|
I have small to medium rocks so I plan on grouping them together to try and get the look of big rocks along both sides of the stream.
|Good excuse to head to the fall plant sale at our local Arboretum!|
|My daughter wanted to push our plants all by herself. |
She knows her stuff!
Japanese Forest Grass, Beautyberry, and Amsonia
|I can finally start adding plants now that I know what I am doing!|
Japanese Forest Grass
|My sweet Beautyberry! A little sprig from a larger plant...can't wait for it to grow!|
|I have much to do!|
Some lovely examples
