June 11th morning looked like a black and white morning .. but the sky improved a little after this kind of spooky beginning ... phew !The treat of the day was seeing "Royal Wedding" .. I had forgotten about her altogether and loved seeing that crisp white with the reds : )
Speaking of my red poppies .. this one reminded me of a rose just opening ...
Then there was Niobe ... she is paired with Henrii but "he" is not showing himself yet .. could have been all the commotion with trying to sink the arbor gate in .. he was not pleased ?
Southern Bush Honeysuckle .. mine has beautiful copper tones in it .. I can't seem to find this exact one on the net yet ... all of them are plain green ! .. Walker's Low nepeta loves to hug it a lot .. hum ... some kind of attraction going on there .. Husker's Red penstemon is behind them in its very dark stems and beautiful white flowers in bud.
Joe Pye ... he's my guy ! This cultivar is the BIG one .. I also have "Little Joe" which is cute .. but I love my big guy for blocking out the neighbor behind us ... thank you Joe : )
Just a shot of my sun face trellis .. standing guard over plants ?
This dainty geranium insists on staying in my garden .. I won't say I tried to get rid of her .. but .. there was question to her staying ?
My secret stash of Casa Blanca lily ... the beetles haven't found her yet .. I also have Starfighter further down the bed ... ssshhhhsss ! don't tell anyone one or it will leak out to the beetles !!
Just some groups of friends posing for the camera ?
I have a thing for my Indian Pinks against King's Ransom brunnera .. I love the contrast of colours : )
Black Lace sambucus against my Gold Mock Orange which is one HUGE ball of foliage !
The lamium experiment is going well : )
Finally Wargrave Pink geranium .. an old standard but I love it and it reminds me of the very PINK gardener called Grace from Gardening with Grace .. hey girl I also have some very PINK annual geraniums tucked away in the garden for shock value ? hehehe
