No, no......I'm not walking like a duck, I built a wattle fence!
This was a very spur of the moment project, I just wanted to create a detour for the cats and the dog around this flower bed. For those who have not seen these little fences before, they are made like a basket, simply push the thicker twigs that will become the base into the ground and weave long thinner branches through the uprights. It makes for an amazingly sturdy fence, or divider, that will last two or three years. Mine is only about 20" tall....we have a short dog!It will look better when a few more plants come up and fill in the space.
In other parts of the yard....I love the look of the "Georgia Blue" Creeping Speedwell and yellow green Angelica Sedum that line the sidewalk in front of our house.
Speedwell (Veronica peduncularis) makes a great groundcover that starts blooming in March and, with very little water, goes all summer. It like full to part sun and grows in zone 6 to 8.
In my endeavor to create everyday......I think my little "wattle" counts, don't you? Thanks for stopping by, remember I love comments and followers.
