Sitting out in the backyard right now listening to a very talkative bird
That sounds lovely. Must be a haven for bees.all 4 rows of trees/shrubs/ butterfly bushes/ sage, now time
The flog type. And that's a very fitting description.
Golf backwards is flog
I don't play, although I have caddied and figured Callaway Handicap/scores. Never could see the point of hitting a little ball, just to track it down (often in water, sand, or behind a tree, etc.) and hit it again. And again. And again . . . poor ball . . .
It would be a pleasure, a little background on the layout, the back property line is on a slope that ascends left to right from 3' to 15' and past or property it rises another 60'-80' through the next 5 properties. It's also very steep descending into our property towards our house for about 20' and gradually levels out through the yard to the house. On the property line up the slope along the fence there are 10 Arborvitae evergreens planted roughly 6' apart and they are now about 5' tall and are 5 years old(1.5' when purchased and could reach 15-20' height) all on waterline #1. Parallel to the evergreens about 6' down from the evergreens are 11 Sky Rocket Junipers, they were 12-18" and are now 3.5-4' and could reach 20' and are on waterline #2. Third row was a mix of Bee Balm, various Cone Flowers, lots of Phlox all different colors and heights. Most of that was removed and being replaced with something for Hummingbirds. It's very steep and hard to take care of, hard on the ankles and I fell a couple times in the rock/timbers, being replaced with flowering plants that won't need to be dead headed much to keep blooming till frost. Row 4 is the lowest level and still parallel to the other rows but on more level ground are from right to left 6 Gold Standard Hostas, 5 Sky Rocket junipers, a 7' Wichita Blue Juniper, full grown it should be 6-9' wide at base and maybe 12'-15' tall, the waterline takes a turn at the Blue juniper and snakes through a series of flowering plants, a 5 Buddleia Butterfly bush, 7 various Phlox plantings, a smaller dwarf Boomerang butterfly bush, a gap of 8' then a 5' Miss Violet butterfly bush, then another s turn in the water line to 3 sage plants, I think they are Cardonna Blue/purple Salvia, the 7-8 ' over to a tree that is 6' tall that flowers dark pink/white rose type flowers that bloom until frost . It's our sit on the patio and unwind place, late afternoon in the shade , lots of birds , Hummers too!Can you share what kinds and colors of plants you have in the 4 rows?
Indeed it is! We had our daughter in ballet for many years and the instructor was a saint (literally, she was saved, but also had an amazing amount of patience in between the necessary steely eyed moments).herding 6 yr old girls is like herding cats.
