A Tiny Revamp...AGAIN!

 
Just a quick posting this week from the Tidy Garden which today has undergone a 'mini' revamp (I know...AGAIN...I couldn't help myself). The disposal of a few tired looking shrublets, a bunch of newly-planted lavenders moved to avoid the blades of the lawnmower that keeps decapitating them and the discovery of a huge clump of Nigrescen hiding under the skirt of Mr TG's beloved Mrs Bradshaw Geum (Strumpet!!)
 
 
What started off as a 'I'm just gonna potter for an hour in the garden' turned into an epic 7 hour marathon but the satisfaction at the end of the day was well worth it.
 
 
The Anemones are putting on another amazing display this year and my plan to carpet the planet with these annual beauties continues, although at this rate they may be knocking on the back door as they're getting slightly too rampant and a tad too tall and leaning over, which in the Tidy Garden isn't a tidy look. They can stay for now but I may have to rein it in a bit next year.
Hope you're all having a groovy weekend...enjoy!

I am constantly re-vamping (although I have never "vamped", so it's a bit of a mystery). Moving things around is the most fun part of gardening, I think. Love your Anemones. I've just planted some (white) for the first time.

I need to revamp my gardens, but I know it will take several hours, so I'm procrastinating. But as you say, the feeling of satisfaction is worth it. Beautiful anemones!

The same thing happened to me yesterday - funny how a bit of a potter turns into something major. Love Jap Anenomes but they don't seem to do very well here - so I have bought a new one with curly type petals and kept it in a large container in the hope that it will survive with a bit of tlc.

Love the color of your Anemones, Jane. A hazard of gardening is the 'potter' that turns into a full day event. Happens to me all the time -- that's why nothing gets done in my house in gardening season!

Beautiful Anemones and photography, Jane. I know what you mean about just an hour turning into an epic marathon (fun, isn't it?). xx

I'm not sure if my previous comment actually materialized, so I'm leaving another. Your anemones and photography are beautiful. I know what you mean about just an hour in the garden turning into an epic marathon. That always turns out to be such fun! All the best! xx

Any tips on anemones? I tried them this year (white joberts) but not so great...semi-shade? Do they need a lot of water or fertilizer?

LOVE you anemones! They're perennial here. My trips into the garden end up with me losing all concept of time and re-emerging several hours later wondering why it's so late and I'm starving. :o)

Love the colour of your anemones.
I've noticed mine are moving towards the back door. Hope they don't come a knocking.

Time I had a revamp Jane, I just do little ones these days. We also have the pink Japanese Anemones, they do indeed grow to a helluva height.
