Hi everybody. I'm here with few words and many photos of my garden in early June. If you have any questions, please leave your email so I can reply. Seat belts fastened? Okay, here we go....
|The middle of my long, rectangular garden.|
|I just redid this area.|
|My south lawn replacement|
|I moved the Melianthus to this bed. It's coming along slowly but it's alive.|
|Here's a little better view of it.|
|I think this is a bit too clashy for my taste.|
|Looking to the southwest-end of the garden.|
|Looking back to the middle garden, we're now standing in the south end.|
|The southeast part of the garden|
|Thanks to the neighbor's trees, it's shady here.|
|Heucheras! H. 'Paris' blooms red all summer. In front of it is 'Green Spice'.|
|I finally found the right place for Rue (Ruta graveolens). It was a pathetic thing just a few months ago |
but now it looks better than it ever has.
|Last week I spotted this little Primula on the clearance rack at Home Depot. $3|
(Primula japonica, I think.)
|Sedum s. 'Cape Blanco' does well in shade. Who'd a thunk?|
|The Sedums seem happy to mingle among the Dianthus so I let them.|
|I'm hoping my Hesperaloe will bloom. It actually gets a lot of sun in this spot.|
|The first Japanese Iris blossom (Iris ensenta 'Variegata)|
|Parahebe perfoliata reaching toward the light|
|Raspberries on the left|
|Looking farther north|
|Nectaroscordum siculum is a hummingbird magnet, while behind it, |
variegated comfrey (Symphytum x uplanicum 'Axmiinster Gold') is a bumblebee magnet.
|Verbascum before the rain|
|The north lawn replacement|
|The north end of the garden|
|Lychnis chalcedonica 'Pinkie'|
|'William Baffin' is blooming!|
|Geranium pratense 'Dark Reiter' and Sedum 'Ogon'|
|The patio area|
|Podophyllum 'Spotty Dotty' and Hakonechloa 'Albo Striata'|
|Darmera peltata skirted with Hakonechloa 'Albo Striata'|
|One of few Cannas that didn't succumb to winter's cruelty.|
|Dryopteris erythrosora 'Brilliance' living up to its name|
|Phormium 'Sundowner' (I think) from HD this year.|
I couldn't resist. I'm going to protect it this winter.
Okay, that's enough for now. Thanks for stopping by.
