I'm talking about pockets of potential you have in your garden .. whether it be a little extra space yo are saving for just the right plant .. or the actual potential of plants coming into their own finally during the garden season.
Maybe even the potential of what the sun's rays give us in how beautiful that morning glow is .. for itself or bounced off sections in the garden that catch it on just the right angle ?
See that "light" spot hitting the fence under the Bittersweet arbor ?
New Madame LeMoine lilac shoots are trying their best to fill in gaping holes I managed to create with the poor thing.
Next to it is the potential of how gorgeous this miscanthus, Purple Flame grass, will look in the Autumn .. what is the opposite of potential ? what ever it is , it is something I created by not getting to this grass to rescue sections of it from over crowding .. the guilt strikes deep when I look at it ... The potential of new and old plants mixed together .. encouraging each other ? .. to make me happy so they won't have to hear me go on, and on, and on ... well, you get the idea.
Plants can be VERY smart !
As promised I wanted to show the progress of the Ostrich Plume astilbe filling out .. this corner is surely a "girlie corner' because it is loaded with pink .. my left brain was in charge ... or was that my right brain ... it was the GIRLIE brain no matter what side ???
Golden Jubilee hyssop was one of my first zone sensitive plants that stayed for quite a few years and produced sweet little babies for me to plant else where in the garden .. I love it for being so kind and generous to me : )
Last here is a huge potential plant .. very common .. very native ... and very much one of my loves because it hangs in there in a VERY squished space, looking beautiful each Autumn.
It is a butterfly magnet .. along with honey bees and assorted other insects.
Joe Pye is still .... my guy ! ; - )
