All about auwillia

Flowers, fruit and vegetables are growing in my garden.

auwillia's gardens

In front we have afternoon shade, and on the side we get afternoon sun.
Soil is hard-packed clay with lots of rocks.

I have two white bleeding hearts, and now one white hardy fuschia called "hawkshead" that I hope will do fine there.

More about this garden...

Northern corner of house, in front. Doesn't get much light any time of day. Currently planted with mint to keep ants at bay. Ferns don't even like it there. Will try hostas this year.

More about this garden...

A shady bed in front of the front porch, currently has some iris and a hydrangea, "Endless Summer." Too shady for iris, really, and soil is damp often.

More about this garden...

Out by the street, between the sidewalk and street. There are a few rose bushes, hens and chicks, Dutch iris, and some chard and onions from last year. May take out all except the roses and cover with bark dust. A bit of a headache spot. Except the bark dust will attract cats... what to do, what to do...

More about this garden...

Robert Plant. A work in progress, in an odd area behind our bike shed and a bit of fence along the property line. The soil is clay and there is still a lot of grass owing to the neighbors rarely mowing and never edging their side of the fence. May be hopeless. One iris, giant allium, and a wire vine grow here, amongst the blueberries.

More about this garden...

A strip along the NW side of the house, only gets afternoon sun, and generally only later in the day. Gets very hot, stays dry, and not much seems to want to grow here, even though the soil is better. One lemon verbena, some tulips, and a lonely hyacinth seem to like it. One "Easter" lily is doing fine back under the eaves. The thyme, sage, rosemary, and dill did not. Even the parsley was unhappy. Grew some lovely borage last year. I'm hoping it returns. Moved some easter lilies in next to the lemon verbena.
