Where the elephant ears had taken over the garden at the edge of the patio next to the garage, was a perfect spot for another little transformation. They were so overgrown that not only did they obscure the English box but created a place for water to run down the leaves onto the patio, which defeats one of the reasons for having a pergola, (to protect it from the weather).
For some days and a fair amount of toil on my behalf, I even managed to move one of the large rocks from up in the back yard by using a trolley. The other larger rock needed more strength, which is where my husband came in handy. I put a fake plant in the corner under the eaves so that I don’t have to water that area. Adding some little black river pebbles mixed with some slightly larger ones, the job is finished, and I am happy.
