RE: Help with plant ID

Karen, I'm glad you found a place with a garden in place.  It is fun
discovering what is there.  However, cleaning up isn't quite as much fun.  I
know the plants will enjoy your care for them and the earth will rejoice
without the chemicals added in!

Daughter Rayna spent her 1st winter in her new home after putting in a new
garden beside her house for folks walking by to enjoy.  It wasn't much last
summer, but it looks very nice this year as things have grown well for her.
However, when I went to visit a little bit ago, I found a huge Adams needle
behind some shrubs in her back yard and a number of surprise lilies, among
other things.  Being new to gardening, she didn't really know what was good
and what was a weed, so it was a wonderful discovery for her.  She does need
to do a lot of pruning in her back yard this year, though, to bring back a
couple of lovely lilac bushes and a couple of roses we found.

It is in my garden.  We have just moved into a new home, and inherited a
wonderful garden to boot, but there are somethings in it that I have never
seen before.

There is some room here for me to put in somethings, but right now I'm in
the process of straightening up.  The previous previous owners put in much
of what is here, but the previous owners we brought the place from didn't do
much except carelessly use herbicides and mow the lawn for three years.  

So far I discovered some Yucca growing behind three overgrown privets and
two purple leaf sand cherries.

I also keep finding little garden decorations -- rabbits and toads holding
lily pad umbrellas,  sundials etc. so it's added reward to all the clean up

Going to be awhile before I can add things!


I'm moving to Mars next week, so if you have any boxes...
