|Forested Flood Plain|
Behind the stand of hellebores are about five Ligularia "rocket" plants. Their leaves are striking and provide interest, and stalks of yellow flowers rise up to four feet tall in midsummer. I am anxious to see if they still flower.
One of the groundcovers that was planted at the edge of the woods was ajuga. Some of it has spread into the woods. These were uncovered after removing lots of leaves and debris this spring.
Another groundcover that was planted years ago was vinca minor which has pretty blue flowers in the spring. This was originally planted around a tree and it has spread into the woods.
|Lily of the Valley|
A gardening friend gave me some lily of the valley plants years ago, and they have spread around the tree which sits just at the edge of the woods.
This will be the last blog for a few weeks as our family is taking a much needed vacation.
