Why so droopy, Annabelle?! No matter how much water it got, the stupid thing ALWAYS looked like this. When I planted it here, it was closer to fall and there was a lot more shade at this spot. During the earlier months though, it was baking. So, I picked this new bright-shade spot for her, by the AC:
Those coral bells never bloom in the shade, and I don't really love them anyway, so I just got rid of them. I got them for free from our neighbor, so I didn't feel too bad about tossing em. We have a very scientific way of removing dirt without a wheelbarrow around here. Observe:
Yup, Home Depot buckets and random broken plastic storage bins. Please don't try this at home, it really sucks the big one. Anywedonthaveroomforawheelbarrowinthegarage, here is Annabelle all uprooted and still sad:
And here she is looking
slightly better still pretty sad in her new home. I'm really psyched that one day she may cover up that stupid white downspout extender that I have yet to address.
To take her place, I got myself a beautiful sun-loving Weigela, 'Red Prince.'
I already have a stunning 'Wine and Roses' Weigela on the opposite side of the yard, along with three tiny 'My Monet' Weigelas, so this is a welcome addition to the landscape!
I guess I stick to what I like!
