Hostas on the Hillside ~ Personal Curb Appeal

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with MoonDancer Realty, Dillsboro,NC NC# 218097
 

After talking about curb appeal in a post earlier this week, it got us thinking about our own curb appeal. So, the weekend was a frenzy of Juniper trimming, branch lopping, shrub pruning, hole digging, yard mowing, rock evacuating, hydrangea planting and hosta moving.

 

We had a downpour of rain last night, just what the transplanted plants yearned for. This morning revealed that the hostas and hyrdrangeas appear very happy. I was fortunate enough to catch these little blooms early this morning after the rain but before the raindrops had fallen off the flower.

I have no idea where you get that kind of energy.  I dream of gardening, but I never get to it.

Sweet image! At the moment, the best curb appeal I can focus on is getting the car washed! We are putting in new french drains before our summer rains and all the trenches are driving the lizards crazy.

Hi Tammy,  I don't know where it comes from either.  The secret is getting someone else to do the weedeating.  It looks nice now but still a work in progress.

Hi Emily,  there's something about hostas.  Especially the ones with the varigated leaves and the little purple flowers.

The muscle pain I can live with William, it's all the bites, scratches and odd toxic plant oils to deal with!

Hey Good Morning Marco, I am surrounded by the Blue Ridge Parkway property and wake up to the woods every day.  These surroundings bring me pleasure too.

Neat picture. Yard maintenace or curb appeal is a continuing battle (not to mention painting, decorations and the like).

Allen, are hostas bulbs?   I trusted google.  I entered the question about when hostas could be transplanted and google informed me that they are very hardy plants and just needed tons of water.  So far, so good.  I didn't see bulbs on them.

Hi Sheila, thanks.  There are some upsides to digging in the dirt but I wouldn't be opposed to having a gardener either, lol.

Than, it is never ending.  The problem is that sometimes I end and then have to play catch up which is definitely a lot more work.
