Work to be done,....

Excavation for the full basement for this house created a pile of rocks nearby. Eventually many of the rocks were trucked away and only a few remain. Over many years I've had several false starts at creating a rock garden on that spot. My thought is to try to make something nice from a mess that was left behind. This summer I am tackling that job again. Here is the "before" picture!
I have a few things from earlier attempts that have survived amid the weeds. This Stargazer Lily is one of the determined flowers that won't give up waiting for me to make the rest of the rock garden attractive.
Stay tuned, in a few weeks I hope to have a nice "after" picture to post for you. But until then, -- there is work to be done!

Thanks Michele, and Montucky,... yes, that lily is really chiding me for not getting at it today. But I promise it and my home that it WILL happen this summer.
