View from the northwest end of the perennial beds that are behind our house. We first placed the flagstone in 3/4 minus gravel (backbreaking work). My husband did most of the heavy lifting and laying, he did a very nice job, being an artist everything had to be "just so". I planted 100 5 gallon boxwoods myself (kill me now!) and then amended the soil, and planted some of the larger plants. The one on the far right is a wonderful bourbon rose named Charles Lawson. It becomes monstrous in size. My hollyhocks grow like weeds and pop up everywhere, they typically get taller than 10ft.! The dog is our old girl Greta, she and our other dog "B" like to keep me company.
