Shade Bed...Done!

This was the flower bed to the left of the front with a camellia that the previous owner SEVERELY butchered. We'd transplanted two ferns from elsewhere in the yard a while back, but never finished it.
But, we got some awesome Pacific Northwest weather this weekend, so we put in 2 different types of hosta: Minute Man (variegated) and Guacamole. A few more ferns, an unknown shrub we scrounged, and 7 bags of mulch later, we were done! It definitely needs some time to fill in and I think it could use a bird bath or a boulder or something, but it's one more item off the to-do list. Well, as soon as we edge it, but really that's just a detail.

Certainly not perfect, but so much better than it was.
