O.K. so maybe not so long ago or far away. Do you remember a year called 2006. It was a more innocent time in our gardens long before the two PKWs (Phormium Killing Winters;) a time when little one gallon phormiums would grow taller than people and anchor whole beds.
There were even large cordylines that didn't succumb to winter's icy fingers.
It was a magical time full of exploration and making yard art.
The year my first cardiocrinum giganteums bloomed.
And the "garden in a day" I put in the year before filled in nicely.
It's fun to remember what our gardens looked like in years past.
It's also enjoyable to ponder what our next steps in the garden will be. For me, major editing is in order for most of the garden along with bringing back phormiums. It's probably a good idea to redo one area at a time and not throw everything into disarray at once. On the other hand, I could leave everything alone, cram more plants in and enjoy whatever survives.
Thanks for tripping down memory lane with me. What projects are you contemplating for the coming season?
