The transplanted garden did well over the next summers. We added a stone path and a bird bath. I planted perennials native to the area such as mountain columbine and blue camas. Lily of the valley and crocus bulbs, lavender and purple coneflowers were added to the mix. I found seeds for a dark purple hollyhock and planted them with the delphiniums next to the house. They took two summers to get established, but they finally grew so huge that my son dubbed the plants the “Holy Hecks.” The columbine seeded itself through the garden. The bridal veil bush, the roses and the crimson barberry all thrived.
