Way back off in the distance is my garden shed. If you click on the picture to enlarge it you will see it better. Immediately to the right is a viburnum and just past that to the right is a second viburnum. The first viburnum is Viburnum opolus 'Sterile' which blooms with snowball like flowers. The second is an arrowwood viburnum called 'Morton'. A young red maple tree is planted directly in the center of the picture. It's purpose is to divide the pathway into to sections around it.
What is missing in all this? A few things could be (none of which are critical or even necessary, just ideas):
- Garden structures: trellises for climbing plants, a faux bridge, or even an arbor.
- Evergreen plantings: nearly everything here is deciduous which doesn't leave much to look at in the winter months.
- Perennial and annual beds: There isn't much here and a few perennials or annials would help to accent the shrubs.
What do you think? What would you add to this area?
