By G. Bosley  a.k.a. “groundhog”

I have been planning and planting a very interesting garden.  This garden is in a partial sun, partial shade location on the shores of Georgian Bay, where the weather and wind exposure is the primary consideration for choosing any plant, along with the presence of groundhogs.

What makes this garden so interesting?  It is created with a mix of shrubs, perennials, annuals and ornamental grasses and has an animal theme.

  • Digitalis – Foxglove
  • Chelone – Turtleshead
  • Cleome – Spiderflower
  • Tricyrtis – Toadlily
  • Monarda – Beebalm
  • Miscanthus – Zebra Grass
  • Chasmanthium – Northern Sea Oats
  • Cotoneaster – Reminds me of the Easter Bunny
  • Antirrhinum – Snapdragon
  • Buddleia – Butterfly Bush
  • Gaura – Whirling Butterflies

This is a great idea for creating a garden to interest children.  All of these plants are relatively easy to look after.

I have had a few problems with my computer and don’t have any pictures available right now, but I will add some at a later date.  Please check back in for updates.

I welcome your comments.
