This plant has been in my garden a few years .. every year I KNOW what it is after I go through a migraine trying to remember it's name .. I'm sure it is a "veronica" and some how "incarnata" keeps attaching itself to it but I haven't been able to nail it yet .. so , this is the foliage and the candle structured flowers are a beautiful violet blue .. if anyone can identify it for me so my brain cells don't explode over this yearly frustration .. I would appreciate it VERY much !!
All of these pictures were taken just two days ago .. one of our sunny clear NO snow yet days;-)
It was "cool" so this furry Lamb's Ear was looking cozy to me .. it does look soft and appealing !
Gray + "fur" means a tough , "sock it to me and I'll still smile attcha' type of garden plant.Veering off absolute gray for one moment, with my fantastic purple sage (could substitute for gray in a pinch) is simply amazing .. but I knew that anyways ... wink wink
Fresh and gorgeous at the end of November .. now that is a beauty !
This little beetle thinks it is the best plant to hang out with too !!
Then back to gray and a little fuzzy .. Nanho Blue buddleia .. still putting out new growth, which is kind of scary .. I do worry for it .. but it has stuck it out in my garden for a few years .. so I think it will be just fine .. fingers crossed !
Gray can be a beautiful colour in your garden, especially when most of it is beige and brown ?
This little sedum is one tough customer too .. first year .. placed in a "hell strip" hot , dry, horrible place and it is thriving : )
OK .. I couldn't help this one .. a few bad jokes but we need a sense of humor right now .. right ?
The flower heads literally glow for the camera !
Hey .. we have either "been there, done that, or seen that !" .. Hameln Fountain grass is DONE for the season .. but it still serves for a few giggles now ?
Hang in there kids from the north who get down time now for a few months .. this too shall pass !
Mean while back at the farm ... the seed/plant catalogs keep us COMPANY !!
