The other day at the nursery, I saw the famous (or infamous) Blue Himalayan Poppy. It made me think of Barry.
Do you think I bought one? Nope. I've already killed more than a few and the gamble didn't seem worth the $10.
|Look how pretty they are all lined up.|
|"Snow" petals carpeted the terrace.|
|This water feature always takes my breath away.|
At Fry Road Nursery, I saw this really cool plant and had to take a photo.
|Bells of Ireland|
|A very cool Mandevilla|
|A blooming banana|
|A baby pineapple!|
Last weekend, in my own garden...
|I saw this sweet Painted Lady butterfly enjoying the Blue Star Creeper flowers.|
Last Sunday my garden group visited Gentle Breeze, a Japanese garden hidden in the forest not too far from home.
|Restrained serenity... I love this water feature.|
|Next to the house, a huge Laburnum tree in full bloom.|
|This Corokia is incredible!|
|I'm not a fan of yellow daylilies but this long row of foliage |
is really captivating.
|Looking back to the beginning of the pathway through the garden.|
I love this simple arbor.
|New Hemlock foliage is so pretty.|
The pathway eventually led down a hill to a babbling brook that was, apparently too captivating to take a picture of. What was I thinking? Dang. However, there were native Delphiniums blooming. Just gorgeous!
Back up near the house, a bank of blue Forget-me-nots were just finishing up while a mammoth Snowball Viburnum took center stage.
On the other end of the bank was a good sized clump of Red Hot Pokers.
|Rocks were placed in a naturalistic way throughout the garden.|
|The hostas area is beautiful and amazingly free of deer and slug teeth marks.|
|The water feature...|
|Looking back over the garden one last time.|
Finally, back at my garden, my new desktop photo. I'm very happy with this vignette.
May your fingernails get dirty this weekend.
