Garden journal entry


The hypertufa face was crafted by Herb from Point Phillip Perennials
August 02, 2009. Remember that journal entry from April 25th? That cutting garden looked like a blank slate at the time, with potential for neatly arranged patches of colorful flowers. Well, it didn't quite happen that way. Years of rampant growth of fast-growing flowers such as purple amaranth, flower-of-an-hour, Brazilian verbena, and summer poinsettia conspired to produce a mass of seedlings which (even after concerted attempts to limit their numbers) produced a colorful tangle of medium-tall flowering plants. Mixed with the purposely seeded cosmos and bachelor's buttons, along with the perennial sea lavender we left in place and the border annuals along the front, it's a visual blast all right, even if it's still as far from a traditional cutting garden as ever before.
