Maples by the backyard fence - check
Serviceberry in the curb strip - check
|Larger Serviceberry in front and the smaller one was moved further down.|
An hour later, the curb was polka dotted all the way to the corner.
And some of my neighbors were giving me funny, incredulous looks. Again.
And now the real daydreaming begins.
I have always planned on keeping this curb strip more simple than the other one, which has become the Front Woodland. But now that I see that fresh, dark dirt just waiting to sprout something, I am having new dreams of grandeur.
Picture this: waves of small white bulbs blooming in unison under the Serviceberry trees in early May... or maybe blue and white?...I must look at May photos.
And for summer: Something simple like Geranium 'Rozanne' blooming in clumps among the Sedum 'Acre'. Oh, bliss.
