Several other clematis did not make it at their new sites. I cut way back on garden beds (really, I did!!) and there are not as many good spots. I tried growing a couple clematis to climb up trees. Didn't work for me. It was worth trying, better than leaving them to get plowed under. I moved a tiny struggling one to see if I can get it to grow and vine down the rock retaining wall.
japanese painted fern (naturalized)
wider view of where I put 5 ferns last year (enchanted forest)
Japanese painted ferns are my fav fern. I transplanted others in my garden beds, as well as a couple natural areas. I am happy to say they have all survived to date!
silly struggling helleborus, trying to bloom
I am considering moving my two helleborus into the barn garden bed. I thought they would naturalize. At least the smaller "blooming" one needs a new home.
a healthier helleborus, no blooms again this year
my mom's perennial geranium blooms are beautiful
She originally planted it at our home, when I was a young teenager.
ditto with the white/yellow honeysuckle
Honeysuckles are considered invasive here. I find them spreading everywhere. I do like the scent and so do winged wonders. Some will stay, others will need to go.
black cherry tree
The above tree sure is annoying. Scrappy tree branches droop down blocking trails. Blossoms are pretty, but very messy. I am sure black cherry trees serve a purpose for wildlife, but the less desirable smaller tilted ones will need to go. Just like the honeysuckle.
