Bee-utiful!

Sunday was a busy day for me. On top of removing old shrubs and planting new ones - I revamped the bee garden a bit.

Last year it looks like this.
Just a straight rectangle down the side of the other fence in the backyard. I'd filled it with so much stuff, I needed to thin some things out and expand it a little. After an hour or so work... it looks like a completely different garden.
And it looks so much better. I only added two plants this year - the heather I showed a few weeks back and a couple Lavender plant
This particular lavender is called "Little Bee" so it couldn't be more fitting. I can't wait until it blooms fully.

And look at what else is going on
The Columbine has buds. Still guessing on what colour this will be.
Same with the Alpine Aster.
And once this one blooms, I might actually be able to figure out what the heck it is!

Your new gardens look great! (What a lot of work!) The new plants looks so healthy, and they will be beautiful to watch as they bloom and mature. Lovely work!

Your garden looks fantastic! We are doing the same thing. A day spent in the garden can make such a difference.
