Note: Hurriedly all the stray bulbs, unplanted perennials and whatever got heeled in to the corner (open ground), by my caring Handsome Son. Beggars and the incidentally and unexpectedly disabled can not be particular.
It all started when the neighbor sided the garage. The idea, that I could remove the black pine, began to take shape. The fence which is such a nice backdrop to my long border could be continued.
You could see why the idea had never occurred to me before...
|I didn't realize how bad this looked.|
|This is the berry bramble side. The side to the right was obscured by the black pine.|
I have erected and stained the fence. I moved the brambles behind the leading edge of the garage. Most of the brick which formed an non-permanent wall will be re-purposed in my next project.

I'm not sure what else will come into play in this corner other than room for the Japanese maple to spread its limbs. I am the thinking process of upgrading my plant selection. The other plants in this section are filipendula, a Korean boxwood, a 'Moorpark' apricot, sundrops, white geranium, 'Johnson's Blue' geranium, a heliopsis, rubeckia triloba, a purple cone flower and echinecea nitidia. an apricot daylily and some large alliums. Also is an Apps daylily I have had for years, 'Apricot Sparkles', which I bought before I met my neighbor Dr. Darrel Apps, but which has been suffering in the shade of the black pine as the pine grew too large for its space.
