I have never noticed so many "serious" bees in the garden before !
This amazing Austrian Pine has survived me sticking it in a pot for over 6 or 7 years now ... we can't help but call it our Charlie Brown Christmas tree : )
Loosestrife is in the name .....
I have been amazed by this new variegated purple fountain grass (except for vertical height .. hum ?) .. the colour is spectacular and matching my "Pardon Me" day lily to a tee !
They look wonderful and yet strange as they mature ... a definite wow factor for me !
I will always have Joe Pye in one form or another ... wink wink
Relaxing view of the back of the bench and of course .. Susans : )
I can't even explain seeing this beauty by pure accident .. husband said the day I did the bench mission, with all of the pea stone and rocks (the mission that has laid me up badly) well .. he said there was this butterfly exactly the same .. fluttering around my head all the while that I worked ! .. I never noticed .. yet she stuck it out with me : ) How wonderful is that !
