There's always something new at Dragonfly Hollow.This year we repainted the bell stand and added a fire pit and tore out a lot of old plants to make way for new plants. Next year our intention is to completely revise the fence by the patio and repaint the arbor to match the bell stand...a nice red-orange!
Custom colored and made just for us, we FINALLY have our fire pit surrounded by the gabion seat wall.
Our gabion seat wall creates a u-shaped area in combination with the wood bridge (before fire pit). Here's a wall closeup below:
In Spring 2010 we removed the last remnant of our mown lawn. In Fall 2010, we planted our blue meadow beginning with
6-1/2 flats of Carex flacca plugs, 400 each bulbs of Allium caeruleum and Camassica leichtlinii.
The photos above shows the Carex with flowering Camassia in June and flowering Allium in July 2011.
Note that the Carex has filled in throughout the one year from little plugs due to the excellent soil prep, great drainage, and plenty of spring rain.
Here's the bigger picture:
