roses brought
one type of Coreopsis, small and was able to get the whole bunch, yeah.....
nice pic of big Coreopsis that was planted behind pond, put in a pot to b planted behind new pond, did great and so big and tall
look how pretty this was, cutting down
starting to cut back wild rose hoo, c middle of garden
starting to look bare on the sides and inside
had to look back and post how beautiful this was
just look at this, I do not know how I ever had the nerve to cut it down......actually tried to take it but did not work, too old to dig up, think this was dug from the wild small
dug this up where we take the dogs hunting and put a small snip on each side to start and trained it.....will have another
ok, back to trimming, oh my, look at all I trimmed off in the middle of the garden, wow
trimming and getting near the top, cannot reach top so will take down and do it on the ground, all by myself so was a little hard to do
look at this pile, it looks like it is growning from the ground for sure but this is not, it is the pile I trimmed off from sides and some top I could reach...all in the middle of the garden
closer view of the flowers, they were so pretty
ok, looks empty for sure, arbor down and going to trim all off
ok all, here is the spot, garden looks so empty w arbor gone and wild rose bush and do not forget the pond that was here too where dirt is......
got arbor in car and pups too with plants to go to new home
able to get snips of the climbing hydrag. and brought that on each side, mayb it will come back, if not vine is for new post of new garden and pond.......hope all was enjoyed

    Be sure to post pics of the "new" garden area. It's sad that you have to take the old one apart but a good thing you can take some of ot with you.
