    Love the tips guys. I'm looking into getting some irises and lilies because of this thread. =)

    Can anyone recommend anything else that doesn't require much light? I'd like to redo the small planting space in my front yard, but it doesn't get constant sunlight because of the way the houses are positioned. I wanted to get rosebushes but heard that they need sunlight for sure.

    @savemejeebus you could do a fern garden. Ferns are beautiful, remind me of the coastal trip we took some years back. Or if you want flowers I think and could be wrong but hydrangeas dont need lots of sun. We had a plant here when we moved in and it was in the 1 little area that is mostly shaded and did real well there. Until it didnt get watered and it was summer time.

    She had my butt out there about 7:30am this morning.. it would have been earlier but I convinced her that it was too early to run the rototiller. we didn't stop till about 4PM... not even for lunch. Look up slave driver in the dictionary to see a pic of Lari!!!!

    We DID finish it and the knot garden in the back yard. Pix will have to wait till tomorrow as we are both too whipped to go out there and take any... besides we'd be taking them right into the sun. It's 7pm... bed time

    @BruceP ... I don't think she's a slave driver ... you are a good husband!

    Most of the planting is done. Just a few finishing touches in the back yard to do. But I just got too sunburnt and tired to finish last night. Back to work today and it was too hot and muggy to do anything when I got off work tonight.

    Mr. Worked to death took the day off and went .
