Sunday Sundries

I am the proud garden mom to another hellebore finally !
Royal Heritage came via mail from Canning Perennials and I was so happy to see such a good large section for me to plant next to my lonely Orientalis (any further name to my one and only, is a mystery to me sadly). So this is the new kid in the bed and I'm thinking it is going to be a stunner next to my not so "only" any more !
Looks perky and happy already, right ?
An older kid in a bed is Dr. Ruppel clematis .. one of my first clematis and it has stuck by my side through a lot of nonsense. I appreciate you baby !
I had to add a sparkle of light since today has been a rain day .. dreary .. but the garden can use the rain so I would not deny it's worth !! (rather it rain than see me out there fighting with my water wand .. it isn't a pretty sight seeing a grown woman do what I do with it !!)
A smiley face in the garden with a hat full of campanula .. just that alone would make any piece of drift wood and smiley face happy, wouldn't it ?
Who let the antenna in my garden ? what unearthly creature could be attached to this mystery ?
Ah ha !! It is my heuchera Geisha's Fan .. the colour range is wonderful and it really is a pretty heuchera to have in your collection : )
That wraps up a quiet weekend .. I need to go lay down now and collect some zzzzzzz's

Congrats on the new Hellebore. I added some to my garden for the first time this spring. Can't wait till mine are as full as your original one. That Heucera is very striking, burgundy foliage ones are my fave. Oh by the way after seeing your Cimifuga 'Hillside Black Beauty' I ordered one for my garden. It's just starting to poke through the soil. :)

Hello there Racquel !
I wished I had ordered more than just one now ! isn't that always the way ? haha
This heuchera goes through subtle changes in the tone of the colour of its leaves .. it is a very pretty one I think : )
That is great about Black Beauty girl !! I promise you will not regret it .. it is so striking ! : )

Cindee girl ! thanks ! .. yup we have to have a variety of smileys in the garden don't we ? LOL
