Putting the Hosta Bed to Bed

I posted a few days ago on where I attacked the Canadian Thistle, and again when my hosta bed was almost finished.  The only thing left to do was mulch, and mulch I did.

(Click photos to enlarge.  It's worth the closer look!)

Ready to tackle the last step - mulch

I've got one last little thing to add to this little garden area, but it won't be in until next week.  I'll share that surprise later, but until then, here's the finished hosta bed with a few impatiens tucked in.

I'm pretty pleased with the way this turned out.  Now to keep the cats from using it as a litter box and digging up my hard work.

Many more home and garden projects still to tackle, so watch for what's up next!

It looks great, I am going to have to learn how to do stuff like this one day soon.

It looks fantastic, Marie Anne. I'm not any good with landscaping. That's why we bought a townhome. I don't even have to mow the lawn.

You totally spruced it up, Marie Anne--looks great!

I really need someone to get rid of these weeds around my tree that are sort of like kudzu but I can't figure out what they are or how to get rid of them.

This is just beautiful, Marie Anne! I wish I had a knack for gardening like you do. I've tried, at times, but have never been very successful with it.
