The New Shade Garden

I spent the last week working on and off on the new shade garden . I had ordered compost and three pallets of stone the previous week for the project.  The hardest part was digging through all the tree roots.  With its southern exposer and high shade this area will be ideal for many of the spring emphemerals that I grow.  I had saved quite a few plants from my old garden which were wintered over in a friends garden.  I  put a small water feature  in the lower wall  which will add a nice sound of water in the background and give the birds a place to drink.
