Wordless Wednesday

Pyramidal Cedar and Chocolate Snakeroot (eupatorium rugosum) .. almost snow flakes on greenery ?

Eupatorium rugosum is so pretty at this time of the year. Finally got the hellebore in last week. You gave me such a generous piece that I was able to make it into two plants. I put them into two of my small island beds- one with more shade than the other. It will be interesting to see how they do. Thanks again!

Nice shot ! I see a lot of folks gardens are still going strong to with the warm weather lasting as long as it did . Now the cold is hitting and some of my flowers and plants are still doing well , guess it will be a major clean up after the first hard frost hits I am surprised it hasn't hit yet ! Thanks for sharing ! Have a good day !

Hi, Joy!
I liked your Snakeroot, nice white flowers. And I saw in plantbook that it's hardy to zone 4 and blooms in October. Will find it for my garden!

Hello Jennifer girl !
By now my poor shrub is beaten down by the winds and rain we have had .. so I should really cut it back to lift the stress off of it. Fingers crossed my hellebore babies will be very happy in their new homes ! You are very welcome : )

Hello Elaine girl I have not done anything yet .. guilty !! LOL
I am not sure when I will get anything done but I keep making mental notes ? haha

Nadezda hello there : ) I think you would like this shrub very much too and it should be fine in your zone!

Oh Joy, I want one! LOL.

That's hardy is it?



Joy, your photos ALWAYS take my breath away! I love that banner photo of 'Tiger Eye' and the combo of Eupatorium and Cedar, lovely, lovely. How are you? I think I owe you an email, don't I? :) Have a great week, my friend.

This is a lovely capture! I also love your header!

Thank you so much for your comment on my blog post yesterday. I had to laugh when you said that Quebec always has to be different, and it is so true! LOL! :) One thing is certain is that out of all the provinces in Canada, Quebec seems to be getting the most media attention due to all the silliness that is happening between the Office de la Langue Francaise and the PQ government.

Lea said...

Oh that is a pretty color combination!
Love your Header photo, too!
Have a beautiful week!

Love the poofs of white against the dark green cedar. nice to see your garden still going strong at this time of year. I've got a few rudbeckia left and some nice grasses but that's pretty much a wrap here as they're predicted -5 for tonight. Snow isn't far away now.

Hi Jen girl .. this picture doesn't do it justice .. it is far more beautiful ! and cold hardy so I am sure it will grow for you there too!

Gracie girl thank you .. you are too sweet about my photos .. I haven't taken as many good ones this year at all. I want to do much better next year with the garden and with the photography ! haha

Thank you so much Linda : )
It is so easy to get a rise out of the rest of Canada when it comes to Quebec .. I think they do it on purpose like the child that makes trouble for attention ? LOL

Thank you so much Lea .. I appreciate you dropping by : )

Marguerite girl .. we had a hard frost a couple of mornings ago and a lot more of my garden is looking droopy now ! haha ... snow is not far behind too .. snuggle in for the winter girl : )
