The crepe myrtle seems very happy with its location, but the lilac does not. We will try to replant the lilac in the fall. The lilac is close to the dining area window and I was hoping for lilac scent to permeate the house this coming spring. I am probably not going to see that happen.
|Both crepe myrtles pictured here are the same one!|
The astilbe made it on one side of the firepit but not the other. I love their feathery flowers so I will try them one more time. Hopefully they will take this fall.
Our red flame maple made it on the third try, but one is leaning and needs to be straightened. We wanted our landscape company to do it because we don't want to invalidate the warranty. However, he's not come after a few attempts. I am not sure what to do!
Plans for the fall: plant some spring bulbs, replace the dead or dying plants, and add some outdoor lighting.

|My favorite piece in the garden!|
|The lilac is to the direct right of the set of windows. Not happy, either.|
