I still can't get over how delicate and detailed it is and yet survives our nasty winters to bloom each Autumn .. hell, it out right GRINS at me !!
This is another of the Morden rose cultivars .. I have been so mean to it .. aphids have been rampant so instead of using chemicals I cut it back rather drastically and yet it also blooms in-between the times it can race past me with a bud before the pruners are at it again ?
A long shot over a week ago I think .. on a dull gray day .. makes for dull gray pictures really ...
But I think you get the idea of full borders ? wink wink
I have been playing with plantings ( sounds like the title of a good garden book to me .. I copyright that title everyone !!) .. by my playhouse aka the "shed" .. ornamental grasses, a huechera or two ? ferns of course and some iris .. I'm looking forward to Spring already ?
Shake those rattles ... you are getting blacker and blacker .. just right for Halloween !!
For friends on the east coast .. where my "sea heart" is .. a lobster trap from Louisbourg and an echinacea to keep it company : )
Dill dill dill ... no other words necessary ??? except look at those little suckers !!
No wonder they are called "fairy bells" aka coral bells aka Pinot Gris Heuchera flowers ... aahhh !
Cityline ... it has gotten my attention and the front one will be moved to the "front" of Quick Fire so it can be seen .. there is a pecking order to these hydrangea, I am finding out ;-)
The pink is almost neon ... peeking through fingers to admire it ??
I haven't seen any other gardeners talk about Sparkler echinacea .. it is one of my long time favorites .. I hope there are others out there ? some where ??
