Hi guys. I hope you're all doing well.
You know those times when you need to fix something but you're not sure how? Especially when it's a garden project, you don't want strictly utilitarian. You want it to serve its purpose, yes, but also be aestetic, eye candy. Well, after letting a garden-related dilemma percolate in my head all summer, not to mention for the past several years, I finally figured it out. Thanks to my gifted and talented son, the project is well underway and I'll be showing you all photos when it's all done. Teaser: It's rusty!
But for now, the bloomers:
|I thought it was kind of sweet how this Actaea ramosa 'Atropurpurea' blossom|
decided to cozy up to a stem of Leycesteria formosa 'Golden Lantern'
|New to me this year is Tricyrtis ohsumiensis 'Lemon Twist'. Typically, I'm not a yellow flower|
gardener and I bought it because of the spotted foliage but the flowers are sweet too.
|I know I go on ad nauseum about the hardy Fuchsias but come on!|
Tell me these aren't gorgeous.
Fuchsia 'Baby Ann'
|Little 'Delta's Angelique' Fuchsia is blooming its head off.|
The flowers are about two inches long. So cute.
|Diascia integerrimus and 'Jolly Bee' Geranium look cute together.|
|This is the gorgeous Begonia fuschianoides that my gal pal|
Mindy Northrop gave me. Another prolific bloomer!
|Thank you, Mindy!|
|The fall-blooming Japanese Anemones have just started.|
This one is Anemone japonica 'Prinz Heinrich'
|I was pleased to see the Wine Cups make an encore presentation.|
|Dahlia 'Fatima' one of my new favorites!|
|Allium spirale or Allium senescens var. 'Glaucum' ... I'm not sure which|
but it hardly matters. The bees are happy and that's what matters.
|Cyclamen hederafolium are blooming all over the place.|
|Shhh... someone is sleeping.|
|The only way I can catch a hummingbird photo.|
I hope your waning gardening days are happy and fulfilling.
