I think we’re through planting trees and shrubs for this year; well almost anyway. We still have a small Ginkgo tree to plant plus two more cedar trees we purchased from the Ohme Gardens. Once these are in the ground we will have planted about 100 plants; not counting the replant of the vegetable garden.
We got some really great ideas about landscaping the hill in back of the house during our visit to the Ohme Gardens. We brought back a few photos. No, I did not misspell home it’s really Ohme.

Of course this is going to involve hauling a bunch more trees and shrubs plus an abundance of other plants up a steep hill; not to mention carving out a path and placing paving stones for access. We will also need to develop a system for watering the plants and supplying water to a small pond and waterfall.

This is definitely not a project to be done quickly, but it should be fun (yea right). Maybe a better term would be challenging.

Let me know what you think…

I think we'll have a fun time developing the hill. The "Ohme Trip" whetted the imagination, along with booking many future hours/days/weeks/months/years of sweat and toil ... but it will be worth it.

Readers: Watch for updates, but probably not too many until the cooler fall days arrive.
The photos look great. Go for it!
