I sewed on 3 more rounds of strips yesterday. I think I'll add one more round of purple before I add the blue.
My neighbors have a mock orange bush on the lot line behind me. It is as fragrant as the peonies and lilacs.
This is the left back corner of my lot. The mock orange bush is in the center back. My gardens are like jungles. This is why I dig up the hostas every 3 years and wiggle the babies loose and pot them. There isn't room to let them get any bigger. I dug out a bunch of the day lilies so I could plant the hostas in the front and you can see the lilies are taking over again. I have a couple volunteer redbud trees at the left that I'll probably leave there since a large one to the left of this will probably die off in a few years.
The bush has never had a nice shape so I'll probably trim it way back again this year and see if it looks better next year.
