Privacy Gardens going in

     A rogue landscaper decided to prune up the magnolias to make it easier to cut the yards. What he did was expose the neighbors yard, and all the cars, etc. in their back driveway.
      This is a wide view of the Back Privacy Beds which were planted in early July. Air layered camellias, hydrangeas grown from last year's cuttings on the grounds were planted at strategic points of view from the back of the house. Aspidistra cast iron plants were moved from the front sunny beds to fill in the back this shady area in the very back of the back yard.
     The camellias and hydrangeas should fill in and block the views of the neighbor while softening the back edge of the yard. The cast iron plants should love the deep shade, thrive and multiply greatly.
     This small planting went in just left of the wide view above. From the back porch of the house this area looked empty and lacking. The camelia is a Pink Perfection which blooms from late fall until late springtime, so as the bush grows it should fill this empty corner with light pink flowers. The hydrangeas surrounding it create a bed. Not sure what color blooms will come from this area of soil. Time will tell.
     I left all the empty pots in front of the newly planted bushes to protect them from lawnmower wheels and weed-eater operators. Better safe than sorry.
