Happy Wednesday Friends! It has become a long, hot summer here in Texas. We have only had one night of rain in the last six weeks and sadly my garden is showing it! When I first started gardening, I moved plants around like furniture in my house, until I found the best place for them. Now that my garden is more established, I try not to move older plants but whether it is due to drought or another issue, sometimes a change is needed...
I am not sure when I first planted vinca as a groundcover, maybe seven or eight years ago. It is always so lovely in the spring with its tiny periwinkle blooms. Unfortunately, I have noticed each summer it gets more vine like and higher maintenance. Despite frequent trimmings, this June it was the worst ever and I decided it had to go!
For the last month, I have been painstakingly digging it up--what a chore! It took long enough but it was worth it. No more high maintenance! Since fall is approaching, I added fresh mulch. Once it cools down a little here, I will probably fill in with some lavender. Until then, I shopped the garden for a few fresh accents...
I made these glass marble stepping stones several years ago and change their location every so often.
This little twig bench was a yard sale find and it has moved around a few times too.
Sometimes change is good ;)
Have you made any changes lately?
