Day 170

I think I finally found a spot for fuchsia baskets

Last fall Dave cut down our huge rhododendrons almost to the ground. We had the landscaper dig up 5 of them so we could plant something more appropriate in those places, but the 3 in this picture show that these are growing back just fine! We wanted these to grow back to fill in the area in front of our patio to give us the privacy we need so in a year or two it should be just right. These were tall and leggy and I'm glad Dave cut them back and equally glad they are growing so nicely. Oh and my hardy gardenia survived. Yippee. It only has a few flowers now but hopefully it will be healthier and happier next year. The gardenia is the plant in the top photo just above the plastic chair.
