Butterfly gardens and bird feeding come first, my newest hobby is bird houses. Whenever I have spare time I'll build a different design. Bonsais are fun. There are lots of plants you can't grow in the Gulf South because of the summer heat and humidity.
I have an unlimited supply of rich compost from several local sites (e-mail me if you live around Covington and can load your own truck). I have made several large gardens with this stuff and now I am trying to fill them. I call them the shade garden, hostas, hydraneas etc. The sun garden, rose hedge, irises, plum trees,zennias,lots of weeds, everything grows really fast. (How do you get rid of Cashmere Bouquet? wish I had never heard of the stuff) The butterfly garden, my favorite. Last and least, the dry garden (2 hoses won't quite reach). Grasses, cactus, Yarrow ect. Need more plants to fill all this space taken up by weeds (mulch, I know, More Mulch!)
