playing with plants

IMG_3786

I’ve been planning this new garden all winter and can’t wait to get started!  I planned the major stuff back in December which included a circular design for the lawn and an Evans cherry tree to anchor this corner.  But otherwise, it is fun to play.  I picked up these three spiraea shrubs (‘Dakota Goldcharm’) for another spot in the garden, but suddenly realized they would give me more bang for my buck here, because their shot of colour will be seen from the kitchen window.  The dwarf cedar (‘Hetz Midget’) will add some winter colour.  The rest of the area will get filled in with perennials… I’m not sure what yet besides my Mom’s bee balm.  But first…. digging!
