Well, at least Spring lasted for a few days! Blowing snow all day. Actually, this gives me a chance to draw attention to the micro-climates (or hydro-zones) that I created in an otherwise flat, bare expanse. This area gets sooooo much wind. In order to visually break up the long space and create areas where I could "tuck in" sensitive young plants, I placed upended landscape logs scattered about each strip. You can see how protected the Pasque flower in my previous post is. Moss rocks were placed here and there for the same purpose and to add some hardscape to contrast with the softer texture of the plantings.
