I thought I would start off with explaining what happens to a camera when inside a cool dark house .. then ventures outside in the BRIGHT , HOT day .. some pictures are cloudy and a bit foggy .. I am learning the hard slow way of what "not to do" jeez !!
These pictures are meant to send to Dave for his request about shed evaluations .. Dear Dave, I'm going to try and get that done to add to the confusion of it all ?
But take note that I am not done with this baby yet .. there are going to be window boxes under each CUTE window next year .. some more stone/brick work .. I want a dry creek bed or what might pass for one, if you have a lot of rum and coke one evening ?
I still have Bella and Lugosi to place in one .. but it might not be until next year .. meanwhile they seem at home on my dining room table ?
My baptisia is a beauty .. so full and pretty from Spring through to Autumn .. I am so glad it took to being in my garden and actually got happy ?
Another more mature plant has been my Anise Hyssop .. it is HUGE and HAPPY with so many bees loving it up .. I can't imagine having a garden without one of these .. the scent of anise when crushing the leaves is amazing .. I love it to bits : ) so do the rudbeckia too !
My butterfly weed has grown those long elegant "fluff" pods aka seed pods .. it really makes Autumn come closer to me when I see them .. the fun I had as a kid .. splitting them open and blowing the fluffs out .. I was helping them prosper and multiply ? ;-)
I just had to stick an Echinacea of the darker colour in here .. they have been beautiful this year.
Add a little sedum, Cosmos and Golden Jubilee Hyssop and that is a Fall bouquet in the making.
Big Joe Pye .. meet Little Joe Pye guy ... now how cute is that I ask you ? I have another little Joe waiting in the wings to be tucked up in bed SOON !
I loved seeing Quick Fire bud out so early in the season .. but I still come back as Pinky Winky's biggest fan .. remember how a lot of us went nuts for him last year ? we were going to do T-shirts and join a club ? hahaha
I have some plant juggling to do in the front bed for next year .. Cityline was hidden by the big girls .. so a little position tweaking is in order to show her off better : )
Mean while Pinky is resting her heads on the Yews ... aaahhh !
My shared space is still "in the making" experimenting is still going on .. and so looking forward to Sweet Autumn clematis blooming and smelling that fragrance so many of you have told me about .. I can't wait !!
