From above it reminds me of a stained glass window. I need to keep that in mind when I go to add more plants. The idea is to keep it simple, Joe Pye and some evergreen ground covers like acorus, sedge or even a black liriope. The green in there now is the native Flattened Oat Grass, Danthonia compressa.
It was twenty two degrees this morning. Finally, all the grasses are getting a good deep freeze dry before being hit with a heavy snow. Dry grass stands up to snow much better than still green grass.
I wandered down there after work to inspect my progress.
And the stack of red bricks started flying. I have plenty bricks. If I can make some pretty use of them I will. This stuff doesn't follow me home for nothing.
I can do a pattern, be abstract, draw lines or even a picture. There are all kinds of possibilities for my bricks. Follow the red brick road. There is plenty of time to play with my bricks. Whenever I might settle on some design I like, the bricks can be sunk into the gravel.
I still have more gravel to move first and grade to check. I ordered extra to extend and freshen my gravel parking area. That whole pile isn't going down to the patio. Playing in the garden can be strenuous at times though.
