Judy has worked hard on this corner of the backyard. Several years ago she scrounged every building site around for flat rocks. She carried them out of the woods on the top of the ridge. The garden has grown the same way, with lots of effort. There are several different kinds of ferns, at least 5, and countless hosta. Amazing to see what can grow in the shade.
I'm learning that every plant has ideal growing conditions, but they are not the same. Some require full sun. Some want moist soil; some dry. And then there are these plants that thrive in the shade. Notice there are no daylilies planted here. I suppose they might grow in this corner of the yard. But I doubt they would reach their potential growth and bloom.
Wondering if there might be some parallels with we human beings.
