High lights and low lights .. plants and ornaments look amazing to me.
Walker's Low nepeta took a few hard cut backs and still came back smiling in a perfect globe like shape .. so pretty ! Southern Bush -Honeysuckle has been a real treat to watch with its surprising colours contrasting against the blue green of the cat mint.
I think it will compliment Husker Red penstemon in the coming years .. Hamlin ornamental grass punctuates quite a contrast in texture .. I think it looks wonderful too !
That afternoon light was so pretty in the freshly cleaned bird bath .. I have to say freshly cleaned because I'm afraid I let that job go by quite a while .. guilt pangs caught up with me big time ? Yes .. I know .. birds drink out of puddles too ;-)
Elly if you are reading this post .. this is what I was describing .. a circle dedicated to Spring bulbs, then over planted with annuals to cover the dying foliage of the bulbs .. I'm really looking forward to this for next Spring .. something of a treasure in the keeping ?
Take my word for it .. even though it looks like a small circle .. the ground was like cement .. no rain for so long and "hose girl" didn't do her job .. even though husband volunteered .. I felt it was my responsibility yet I let it slide ... jeez !!
The stones to the right .. is the example of what I am looking for with the invisible landscaping guys to perform .. or did they say it was best to have a higher edge ? .. must look up notes !!
YES .. my dragonflies are still in the garden .. this little one is not as colourful as some .. but look at the beauty of those transparent wings .. amazing !
A touch of Halloween ... on top of the fridge .. but everyone has to go there some time .. so they have to see it ... right ? ;-)
My amazing Toad lily .. I chopped it back severely thinking it had done its job .. that I was giving it a rest now to relax for the upcoming cold weather.
