Thank You! Frillylily. if it makes you feel any better, you can come over anytime and help us with the upkeep! seriously, we are out there constantly, digging and replacing, moving and replanting. buying more of the same plants that didn't make it through winter Sighing! trial and error to see what comes back and what didn't. but I must say, upkeep on our shade gardens is far easier than on our full sun flower beds. hardly any weeds in shade gardens! this year we laid out soaker hoses for the first time. watering by hand for us is a daunting task that takes about two hours from beginning to end. not to mention I didn't post any pics of the two dozen or so pots and boxes on our back deck that need watering as well... we're hoping the soaker hoses are a good investment!
