Little by little our garden shapes up.

It was a busy day spent in our back yard, yesterday. We erected a trellis for our clematis to grow on and planted a lilac bush. We also planted a red Dahlia plant and another bush of which I can't remember the name.

I'm really happy with how it's coming along. I can't wait for it to start filling out!

We still need to get some fill dirt for our silver troughs. Our plan in to fill it with clumping bamboo or lavender. We haven't quite decided. The bamboo is expensive and I'm afraid the troughs will get too hot and burn the roots. I know lavender is pretty tough, so I think it will be tolerant.
Plus, it smells so nice.

We're still debating...

In other news, my table is all set up on Poppytalk again! I really like working with Jan and Earl who run the site, so I try to advertise with them whenever I get a chance.

Hope everyone had a lovely weekend :)

you could fill the tub with lettucesor arugula...there are so many varieties that are pretty as they grow and in 30 to 45 days you have dinner : )

We were thinking of doing veggies too! There are too many options...
