The plants are now well established. The above picture was taken last week. Right before I installed 1000 pounds of mulch.
Lovely! And the dark mulch shows off the plants really well.
Next up was the rose and peony bed in the garden. I installed another 1000 pounds on Sunday.
The pink tree peony is very happy with the change and is blooming vigorously.
I have now installed 1 ton of mulch total (it's actually compost, but we are using it as mulch) and still have at least 1 ton to go to cover most of the vegetable garden and any other exposed dirt areas. I am also collecting all the grass clippings and mulching all the pathways in the garden. The paths are now very quiet when you walk through them.... very zen and meditative. Maybe I should lay out the grass paths in a labyrinth! and then we could walk the labyrinth (with coffee in hand) to meditate and solve our problems.
I love the one in the Chartres Cathedral.
Since this would take up most of the planting space in the garden, I don't think Mom would go for it.
