Adjudication ...

I'd just spent the later part of the day madly digging up lank sun loving perennials , under a whole lot of  other sun loving perennials ; and here I'd thought I'd done a good job planting things out this spring.

So...Crocosmia and Kniphofia and Helenium you have been relocated to new spacious ground . Sedum 's have had to vacate; which have been allowed to take up far too much anyway.

After I'd gone in for the night, I picked up my current garden read : ' Onward and upward in the the Garden' by Katharine S. White . Katherine was having the same problems in chapter 5 , 'War in the borders, peace in the Shubbery'. At one point she wants to say" Let it go.Let the plants fight their battles"


  1. Oh Linda, your garden looks so beautiful!

  2. I was going to say exactly what Peter did, gorgeous!

  3. Sometimes we have to just let our plants duke it out. Other times, moving them seems the most prudent approach. I don't think you need to do anything. Yours look perfect. Great photos.

  4. Whatever you are doing, it seems to be turning out just right. I usually take the "duke it out" path and everything winds up looking a bit battle scarred.
