I'll start of at this point in the back garden.
Less to water on the deck and more plants in the garden meant fewer weeds got a foot hold, you have to love that right ?
Gardening with Grace .. I do have a thing for PINK even with my work tools ;-)
A clump of Green Panda is behind the ornamental grass.
Summer Lace hydrangea has become one of my favorites.
I use it to try and hide the AC unit as well as look gorgeous!!
I have a mystery hydrangea just below it .. it hasn't flowered in 2 years so I am becoming a little leery about it !
The goldenrod next to it is a beauty and of course I can't find the name tag .. it is an older perennial I transplanted quite a few times, it really is a beautiful cultivar of the goldenrods.
Black Eyed Stella ..
"Blue Angle" paired with Ilse Khrone white climbing rose which a shot of is just below this picture.
Strawberry Seduction" really did seduce me ... I had one mail order plant but had to buy another one at one of our garden centers .. to keep the first one company ? haha
Double Scoop Raspberry" was another one that caught my eye .. I don't usually like the double flowering cone flowers but this one was a cutie !
Sugerberry, Coco, and Sweetart .. plus a couple of hellebore and pulmonaria
Ostrich astilbe is one of my favorites .. I love the almost weeping habit it has .. it echos my "Red Majestic" crylus(corkscrew hazelnut) further back and at this time of year not so red but still very pretty !
Frans Hall day lily is very striking with it's colour pattern
Little Grapette day lily that is used out front for more interest with a surrounding border last year .. I will have to watch it and see if my idea really works or just confuses things more ? haha
Sparkler" is simply gorgeous and a lovely PINK !
I planted dill with the rose arbor hoping it would help ward off bugs and it does seem to work.
