An "Artist's Rendering"

So, all of the dormant plants have been planted.   And our hill basically still looks like this.

Doesn't look like much, does it?

But here is an artist's rendering of what it SHOULD look like, assuming that all of the many "dead" plants actually make it.  This is also assuming that 10+ years pass, since I'm pretty sure that's how long it takes for twigs to become plants that look like this.

Dog not included

Nice, isn't it???  I really hope that some day I can look back on this picture and say to myself, "Wow, I can't believe that it actually turned out just like artist's rendering."

Here's what you're looking at from top to bottom:
- Rose of Sharon
- Dogwoods
- Blazing Liatris (purple things)
- intermixed with Blue Oat Grass (brown stuff)
- Lilies
- Creeping Phlox

And because this is a perennial garden, all of those things should come back each and every year.  The only maintenance we'll need to do is some occasional weeding and we'll probably have to either cultivate the mulch or add new mulch every year or so.

Some of the plants, such as the lilies and the liatris, are supposed to spread so maybe in a couple of years, I'll be able to give away some of the things that I planted!
