Back to the shade

The first thing I did in the new shade garden is plant the primroses I had dug out. I used them to create a path thru the area. I gave them plenty of room because I'm hoping they like it here and spread. This is quite a large area and I wanted a 'walk in the woods' feel.I also added some large rocks I had in other areas.
I moved the jack-in-the-pulpit to behind this tree. It was so far back you had to step on other plants to see the bloom.
Then I had to add some 'art'. The box on the table has 4 small spaces and I put a different coleus in each space. I also added a bench with a sitting frog and a planter on the right side 9something has tipped this over twice!) and a bird house on a log to the left.

Stay tuned, adding plants is next!
