Back Yard - Almost Done

Yay! Our back yard landscaping is almost done. (Again, for the fall, only. I have many more plans, but they'll wait until next spring.)

We dug a new flowerbed today and I finally got my fall blooming plants in place. This bed is along the inside wall of our master closet.

Obviously, we ran out of the stone. These are the extras we've had from the other beds. Looks like a trip to Lowe's! I put in some irises from Dave's mom's yard, fall aster, hens & chicks, autumn sedum, and a vitex tree.

This bed is along the back fence, beside the gate. It's anchored by a juniper on one end and a guara on the other. I know they are hard to see, so I'll just tell you what's there. (Left to right....) lantana, fall aster, purple mum, autumn sedum, guara. Love my iron fence and my weather vane. We know the weather vane needs to be higher to actually work, but I don't want anything to happen to it.

There are lots of holes for spring and summer plants! Yippee!! I'll spend the winter going through my gardening books and magazines, picking out just the perfect plants.

Have I told you how much I love my flowerbeds?
