Got these today! 6 total plants. DH randomly talked about shrubs by the dog yard fence, so after melting in the sun for 1.5hrs, we decided on the Euonymus Manhattan.
Then I keep seeing these awesome colorful things and never see anyone have them, so we got 4! And randomly got a discount, too!
Then I find out they are evergreen! WHOOO!!
The pink on the right, was the only one, I had to get it!
Left to Right---
Heuchera Sunrise Falls.
Heuchera Green Spice.
Heuchera Crimson Curls.
Heuchera Redstone Falls.

I hope you will be happy with your new heuchera. They are easy to grow and usually the first plants I check in garden stores and catalogs. New varieties popping up every year and all of them adding beautiful color to the shady garden.

Planted them.
Then got 3 more plants.
Hello, I'm Klaudia and I'm a plant-aholic.
Lol
Got a new Emerald Gold Euonymus that died over winter. 2 out of 8 didn't make it through winter. Replaced the first the other week.
.....wait...is this thing related to those 2 new bushes we got...? *reads previous post* Ohhh, they are...weird. Other is larger and faster growing, these from last year are smaller and slower growing. At least based on tag. I wonder how true it is.......ah well.

Then I got a Camelot Lavender Foxglove. And a Hosta Sunshine Glory.

Got mulch down for the new section and we're going to stop for awhile.

Also had to buy a new mower, killed the last one. New one has 4 wheel "drive" so the evil thorn hill was soooo easy to do! Got most of it done before a fat bee showed up and was pissed off that it couldn't recognize where it's home was....so we ran away and quit for the day. lol.
Pics tomorrow! Or...eventually. Have a very busy weekend!

Working on getting the chainsaw up and running, will be cutting the dry sycamore logs into hopefully round plates and use them instead of/between mulch. Have a lot of wood, so hopefully, we won't have to buy much more mulch anymore.
Kinda like that C shaped wood in this picture, above the flopped over daffodils.

Will paint the C shaped wood blue and move the fishing boy from the stump onto the 'deck'!
