Eye 2

And the Garden Master writes:

ok buddy, this is your idea!

looked at the pics of what we did last sunday. here's some suggested improvements...

1) the donkey tail...see that bare patch on the lower left? take some hina hina from a big clump somewhere else in the tree and hang it that gap so it looks fuller. you wrap the hina hina gently around the donkey tail and through em so the tails don't break...

2) the hina hina that's on the branch next to the donkey tail? push the left side of it only (over toward the right side about 8 inches...squish it). you want that to be more asymmetrical between the staghorn, donkey tail and hina hina...right now the hina hina looks like laundry on a clothes line...not so natural...

3) you need to put some stuff around the edge of your koi pond that's not under the tree so the edge "disappears"...see what we did with the pond under the tree...most of the edge is camouflaged by plants?

i want you to get some of those one gallon black plastic pots (smallest size of the pots the anthuriums are in)...maybe about 7 or 8 of them... and maybe 3 that are the size of the anthurium pots...and get a 2 cu. ft. bag of potting soil.

dig up lauwa'i in the yard by that big rock and put em in those pots.

if you've got any ferns other than lauwa'i in the yard...plant some of those, too.

4) the orchids on the ladder... scrounge around for clay pots around the yard to put the plastic ones'll look more uniform.

5) we forgot to plant something in that little duck next to the water plant...look for something in your yard that'll stay really small...maybe some keiki bromeliads with very small leaves?

there you go...let me know if you have any questions. g

First, Thanks, buddy! It all sounds easy so far.

And now I'm off to play in the yard ...
pics to follow!

oh crap, i forgot...

6) ah...i missed the christmas lights over your window...take em down 'til christmas...

Heh heh. I thought those had slipped by you. I was going to argue that Christmas lights in summer was part of my culture ... but I'd be lying.
