A couple of pictures of our late spring garden in the south.
That is AWESOME! I might have to copy you if I ever grow a pumpkin as big as yours!
Your natural pool looks really nice! Figuring out what to plant along the ridge might be difficult since the arborvitaes are going to be Gigantic eventually, creating a shade garden where there is now full sun. Depending on how close together they are, sprinkling in some different varieties of evergreens to soften the line and add interest would create a nice backbone for more planting down the road. Once the evergreens were larger I would layer in some Japanese maples and flowering evergreen bushes, and then plant the hostas, which might fry without a little afternoon shade, although there are a couple varieties that do well in the sun. Under-planting the hostas with some great naturalizing bulbs would really bring a little wow factor in the spring without being too high maintenance. You could also consider sun loving ground covers, which would naturally "run away" from the shade of the trees as they grow. Good luck!
Such a wonderful picture, and so sad...I am sorry for the loss of your friend.
You're so lucky, all it did here in MS was half kill one of my camellias! (actually, our bulbs were gorgeous this year, though) :)
I agree, make sure to post again! Welcome to the site!
You have a very lucky friend!
