Bon Weekend – Full Frontal

My gardening obsession has reached a fevered pitch recently and we’re going to address the main front bed shortly. The above photos were taken the day we looked at the house. I love variegated Pitosporum (the small bushes in the front), but they have a nasty fungus on them. Actually, most of the plants in the front are infected with something. Apparently we’re not the only yard suffering. The other bushes, mom knows their name, also have to go. I’m just not a fan. In their place we’re planting a loquat tree, white oleander and some lower growing plants. One of our sago palms is already in the bed and we have another sago inside that will now make it’s home outside. I’m in hopes of eventually having a curved palm or two in the front. They cost more, but I love their lazy slope.

I ordered some Hakone grass (aka Japanese Forest Grass) from Hyams this week. Oh Hyams, it has been my secret desire to work there for most of my adult life. Maybe one day!
