Change-ups in our courtyard

Clockwise
          Before_Our old old, years old Nandina and Aagapanthus. The 2 Nandina grew too big over the course of 15 years, although the drought had finally wrecked them, and the 4 Aagapanthus were basically over taken by them. The catus came with the house and, having started to totally decay, was discarded
                    So, we took heavy equipment to them and within a half hour, all 5 were basically gone. At least above ground.
                               It took quite a while longer to have them gone below ground but eventually we had a new canvas to work with.
                                        Our most local nursery, Summerwinds, was/ is having a sale, they're sadly closing our location, so we got very good deals on the replacement plants, 3 Ruby Stella Hemerocallis, 1 Petite Plaum Crape Myrtle, it grows about 5 feet high and 4 feet wide, and 3 other lower growing plants that I forget what are. All 3 types were chosen for their sun and drought tolerance and, natually, their textural differences.



Afer they've grown in a bit, I'll post another photo.
Below I'm just throwing in a couple of photos of our walkway because I think it looks quite nice :)
