One week new raised Beds


                   one week old. It is nothing spectacular but it is still a newborn baby.  :)
Going to work on Paul's rainbow garden today in Munising. Will post pictures tonight.
It is not spectacular yet either... ....:( But it is coming along.
Ok this is my new Cat's Meow..... Walkers low
This is from a great site Stargazer Perennials
http://www.stargazerperennials.com/Walkers_Low_Catmint.html

Background of Walker's Low Catmint:
Introduced in 1988 in Europe, Walker’s Low Catmint has become more popular with each passing year. Nepeta 'Walker's Low' is a member of the mint family, Lamiaceae. Members of the mint family are easily recognizable by their square stems, opposite leaves and often aromatic properties. Walkers Low Catmint is a selection from the Faassenii Group of Nepeta. Walker’s Low is named for a garden in England where it was selected and is not related to its growth habit which is actually up to 36" high. 

Appearance:
Walker's Low Catmint is a soft mounding perennial with attractive silver-green foliage. Prolific, small violet-blue flowers on arching stems bloom from early spring until frost. At Stargazer Perennial's farm we have seen Walker's Low bloom in November when snow was on the ground! To tidy this hardy perennial up mid-summer, trim back by half with simple garden shears. After shearing Walkers Low Catmint will be up and blooming again in 2-3 weeks.



I REALLY REALLY REALLY LIKE THE PART THAT IS COULD BLOOM IN DA SNOW.....sometimes it snow's in Oct here...


I may have planted it to low in the ground and might have to raise it up some....  


Tried my new tool my amazing garden guys uses.  Could not find one with long handle.  Tried to edge the tiny bed.  mmmmm think this could take some practice. 

Ok this is a picture of the neglected Phlox that was buried and boy I mean buried between the picture below.  Of a Cedar and a beautiful Tamarack tree...
(who were babies when we planted them)  They are much pretty than the pictures.  Our thought was to give us a little privacy cause our house is so near a major highway......


T
They have become buddies
See they are holding hands.
Way way to close together..  But to big to dig out for us old geezer's.
so hear is wishing you a Great Sabbath...
and May God Bless....


God is good ............................all the time....
