The winter was hard for Kentucky and for us and we lost several bushes — among them two large knock-out roses and a cherry laurel. So . . . with the final arrival of spring, it was time for re-gardening — to coin a new word.
The slides below will tell you the tale as we developed a new landscape scenario. Lots of hard digging to remove the old ground cover and the dead bushes and then much raking, but we triumphed!
(The first two pictures are of our peony and our snowball [not sure of its official name] bushes in the back yard which both survived the winter.)
