This whole corner was filled with a heather. Which was pretty, in its own way, but the house is surrounded by shrubs and evergreens that provide green; I want color! On the left in the picture are two salvias I put in before I attacked the heather. Now that the heather is gone I have a couple of Black-Eyed Susans and some Cranesbill to put in the empty space. I also have ranunculus tubers to put in. It's not going to look full and pretty until next summer but I may be able to find some other little plants to fluff it up, herbs or something. Whatever it is, it needs to be sturdy and perennial. No fussy plants for me!
Speaking of challenges, I want to participate in Tonya's Priority Hope Challenge for the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative. So far this is all I have, a patch roughly 4" x 6" on an 8.5" x 11" piece of batting. Ideas are percolating however!
