An experiment with growth and design

I'm new to starting anything from seeds, and also to bulbs. I started my voyage into this brave new world, and there's no turning back now. I relied on a few petunias, and roses to serve as my old faithfuls, just in case this year turned up brown thumb. I put in a second tier to the flower bed on the side of the yard that gets the most sun by using old paving stones that were pulled up in the back yard. This spring / summer, I'm working to make a low maintenance space in the strip of yard between my house, and my neighbor. It's shaded, on a slight incline, and a pain to mow. My idea? A fern garden. We'll see how much progress I can make as the weeks pass.
