A few mornings ago I saw my lattice vines doing their yoga .. stretching for the sun in a sun salutation pose ?The shade side fills with hints of sun kisses ..
Blue False Indigo ... baptisia .. a long lived plant and one of my oldest in the garden so I can attest to that fact. I love it .. it is an all season plant and the "Ta Dah !!" part I fall for every time are those fascinating black seed pods that rattle .. go figure ? I am a big kid and it is Halloweeny to me : )
Ms Flame Amur maple has amazing flowers .. she is a beauty and I am so glad we found her !
My three stooges frogs (I have a thing for Moe, Larry and Shemp .. Curly is ok too but Shemp does it for me ?) .. JP Connell rose has been setting some buds .. I have to be sure to watch for those other little "buggers" in the garden that I hate .. APHIDS !! aaarrrgghh !!
These bugs aren't so bad .. they are interesting to watch .. and my "Flame" peony doesn't seem to mind them what so ever.
One of my very favorite delicate ladies .. Canada Lily .. now how could I not have it in my garden? .. it put three flowers out last year so I am hoping for at least the same .. a beautiful orange colour .. and of course reminds me of Halloween a little , due to the ORANGE ?
Ah ! .. the new acquisition by happenstance ? "geranium yoshinoi 'Confetti" .. I seem to have a thing for geraniums this year .. the variegation intrigued me so it came home to show me what it is made of !
Just a few views of the garden .. sort of that cloudy gray day look .. it is so much more colourful in person !
My favorite 'vignette' ? .. I love my Tiger Eye Sumac and the ferns surrounding it makes it feel so lush .. just a little place in the garden that I love to look at .. we all have those moments right ?
