Finished Bougainvillea bed

Monday, May 02, 2016

Finished the planting of my Bougainvillea bed. It's had to see in the pictures but I planted a Crepe Myrtle bush on either side of the Bougainvilleas. They are surrounded by Impatiens. I set up a drip water system for the beds with the Crepe Myrtles & Impatiens. The Bougainvilleas are established enough not to need watering. My husband, Val, was having an interesting time moving around the Bougainvilleas. So now the beds are surrounded by landscape edging & mulch. I do have some pruning to do at a later date.

We have an old bed in front of the house that's looking sad. The only color were some volunteer Impatiens. I want to create a butterfly garden with that bed. Today, I created a small triangular bed in a corner of our fence. After preparing the bed, I moved all the volunteer plants to it. I'm going to add some Impatiens from Lowe's tomorrow. When I get done with that, I'll post a picture.
