We then go shopping at the Plant Kingdom and Fred Meyer to buy small trees and bushes, as well as raid Garden Boy's woods and gravel pit in North Pole for more little shrubbery and hummocks of bluebells. We watch to see where last year's plantings arise again, and then put the new stuff in the blank stretches between.

[[tara_photoalbum/2000garden1/MVC-014F|]] Various bushes are put in from the Plant Kingdom Nursery, and transplanted from Garden Boy's gravel pit. In the rear are happy lilacs from K-Mart put in last year.
[[tara_photoalbum/2000garden2/Mvc-010f|]] Mme Exxxedrin recklessly planted a few fistfuls of sunflower seeds (bought as bird food) along the long walk and elsewhere this May. Already they are taking over, and will likely do frightening things.
[[tara_photoalbum/2000garden2/Mvc-013f|]] The pots are filled with annuals from all the local hothouses. Behind stands a new honeysuckle bush from Plant Kingdom. What we learned last year was that potted plants, transplants, bulbs and seeds that were planted early in the summer made it through the winter even if they were not in good shape when they went in, however, bushes and perennials put in late (with the exception of the Tulips) died over the winter even if they were healthy last August. So we are racing to put in the maximum number of shrubs by the end of June.

Certain plants can winter over in Alaska and so bloom fairly early:

We also had great success with the tulips we put in:

Anything in a planter, or pot will die over winter, so pots are filled with annuals from nurseries at the beginning of summer (May). Many plants that are perennials in the lower 48 are annuals here, like begonias, fuchsias, and some dainty daises. [[tara_photoalbum/2000garden4/Mvc-014f|]]
[[tara_photoalbum/2000housetrim/mvc-014f|]] Here we have prefabricated fake topiary from Sam's Club (39.99 each!) into which we have thrust moss, dirt, and Wave petunias so that they appear to be entirely real instead of 2/3 fake leaves. The pre-built topiary is less expensive than buying , or even making, the frames and planting and potting them yourself, plus the fake leaves blend with the real ones so there are no bald spots while the real vegetation is growing. 8/18/00 Mad Hatter's Tea Party (Greetings to new theatre students) 2000.
