If you missed the first installment of this project you can read about it here
A few days after digging out the flowerbed I was able to level all of the edging stones. It went much faster and easier than I thought. And I bought way too much paver sand and base. Since I ran out with the compost and manure I really over shot with the sand and base...guess I have it on hand for future projects!
Then I started adding plants. I guess I need to take a new overall picture of the whole bed, but for now, here are pictures of what I put in. And let me just say, shopping for plants is so fun! Who knew?
Dragon's Blood Sedum
Purple Cone Flower (there are 2 of these, and one yellow coneflower)
I forgot what this was called...
And my personal favorite...Autumn Joy Sedum
They don't look like much now, but they are summer flowering plants that will hopefully be beautiful in a month or 2. They're all drought tolerant too, which is important for someone like me. ;o)
And best of all, they've all been planted for atleast a week and are still alive!!!
