Now here it is in May, 2012...same place only much different. the sum and substance hostas are huge on either side of the statue. The tallest plant to the left is a rose of Sharon in red. The little tree to the right is a tiny redbud tree. The pot was replaced by another huge hosta...I forget it's name. In front of the statue you can see a mass of daisies and sweet William to the left in front. There is wild ginger planted there and lilies of different kinds. Phlox are everywhere...not planted by me. There are columbine and Virginia bluebells there too. I have tried to keep things separated and put some space between plants, but this year I've had to let it go and things have just grown like wildfire. You can hardly see St. Francis...I may have to bring him forward or just take out some plants in front if they get too big. I planted all these things in the past and now I'm just leaving it alone. Just shows you what a couple of years can do...if nature is left to do it's thing without much help from human hands.
