I love Outdoor Wednesday. Everyone is so creative in what you find...even in the midst of winter for some. Susan is the hostess over at A Southern Daydreamer.
Well, we're almost through with our arbor project. I hope I haven't bored you to tears with this! We added plants this past week.
We went to the nursery to browse which isn't how we usually do things. We typically have a plan and are seeking specific plants. This time...not so much.
We found some gorgeous yew which was already potted. They are huge! I love that they give the landscape a look of being there a while. We took one out of the pot (which had been broken).
The other one we placed on the far side of the arbor. I love the age on the urn. I will add my mother's bird bath and a concrete bench I've had forever.
We also planted abelia. Love the glossy leaves!
A double bloom red Knock-out tree rose. Our's looks like this:
But it will look like this one day...I hope!
We added three of the new Sunny Knock-out roses. Ours -
My daylilies are coming up like gangbusters!
We hope to hit another nursery this weekend to add a Climbing Pinkie rose and purple clematis to the arbor.
See you tomorrow for Tablescape Thursday!
