    Bogs 2 and 3

    Well I added a 2nd and 3rd bog over the past few weekends. They are 6ft, 5ft, and just short of 4 ft bogs. I cleared out my potted plants... so no more garage plants this winter!

    I love the bog designs. Does the sprinkler water affect the plants?

    Loving it. . . must be so refreshing to walk outside and see a handful of awesome bogs like those in your yard.

    Thanks.

    In regards to using a sprinkler.... I had purchase on of the types that your can really control the direction and coverage... So I can avoide the bogs while watering the perennial beds. I don't water the grass... Just let it go dormant I the summer.

    I do walk the yard each day before leaving for work.... I enjoy it... Though most other non cp folk just get confused as to what a bog is in the first place... Ie " aren't bogs just swamps? Why do you have swamps in your yard"

    (Assuming that you are the one I got it from) that's it on the lefts side of the front bog... I tried to leave some elbow room for it... It's getting quite wide

    Fantastic bogs. I need to make one from my temperate plants.

    Thanks.

    Side note... i just noticed that a few bletilla striata orchids are growing at that crown of a plant in the bog. They are about 4 inches tall now. The plant was many years back in a pot next to the orchid patch in the perennial bed. I always let the orchids go to seed just to see what happens.... and it looks like they liked the peat media.
