Yet we still do that 'thing" and still expect one chain of events to lead to another in a logical fashion .. but being gardeners we know by now that just doesn't work, right ?
You still can't hope but "expect" a little, going the way you thought it would ? Human Nature !
This little division of a heuchera THINKS it is a cluster of Autumn leaves ... look at those colours .. why shouldn't it think as much looking this gorgeous !
Midnight Wine weigela .. now doesn't the name speak volumes about it being on the darker side of a velvety dark night .. the heather (one of three I planted there) doesn't give a toss about names .. must be the Scottish background .. tough and a 'so what" attitude ?
Campanula .. little to large, are usually predictable .. they meet your expectations and usually soar above them .. ask Northern Shade .. she knows them very well !
Little Joe Pye weed (I had to get two .. just to be safe) is a cutie and I can't wait to see if they are predictable ..
Orange Velvet climbing rose .. I usually go on about Zephirine Drouhin and how gorgeous she is .. but I do have high expectations for this one too .. after all, look at this amazing bud late in the season.
I had to pop a few not so colourful shots from that road trip .. expectations were not met for a show of colour .. but there is still time ...
... and there is a slight reflection in the beautiful water ...
Afternoon sun highlighting a variegated sedum with Provence lavender .. they both exceeded my expectations so that was nice : )
My little Wintergreen still shocks me with its gorgeous colour this time of year .. it is slow to spread .. almost painfully slow .. but we have come to an understanding .. and it is , where it should be .. so I will be happy with that !
Hey ..... work with me here OK ????????????????
