Winter- dont know which shrub you refer to-that is a greengage plum, but it's to the right. And a barberry in a pot up the hill.
gardenfanatic, the stone walls are hiding the cinderblock in front of two ponds I dug years ago that need relining. Rocks I have plenty of!
As you can see, it's a work in progress. I have strimmed away the grass and weeds, so it looks quite barren. I have lots of things in pots I will plant in the fall--it's going to be too dry this summer to do much beyond hardscaping.
Everything I plant here must be drought tolerent and deer resistant. Lots of bulbs, bluebells, lavender and lamb's ears. I already have plenty of thyme. And the rose campion grows wild. Will also try transplanting some foxgloves-I have a couple that have turned up in pots.
Would love to see some pics of your hosta combo!
