Planting – phase 1

Well the planting has finally begun!

I went to Calloway’s nursery yesterday to go check out the plants. I wasn’t sure exactly what I wanted but wanted to see what my options were. I decided to take someone with me for the main part of the landscaping but pretty much knew what I wanted for the island.

I put one pampas grass in the middle of the island and surrounded it with yellow zinnias and vista red salvia. It is pretty sparse right now but should fill in nicely. Unfortunately, I didn’t ask for help (yes, I was in a nursery :oops:) and the zinnias are annuals and the salvia may be as well. Oh well, I will just plant something else in there next year! 😀

Ricardo posted a few pics in the pictures section so go take a look if you get a chance. I don’t think the pictures quite do it justice! :mrgreen: I think it looks pretty good for having no clue of what I was doing!

Now let’s just hope they live and grow…:grin:
