Nor have I been a decent blogger and visited my friends blogs .. guilt guilt guilt !
I guess the first thing is to do a post and get that out of the way because it is going to get crazy busy here again with more mail order plants coming and me with that magic plant shoe horn squeezing them in some where ... why is it when I sit at the computer I think I can do these things is beyond me!
First .. just some plants to highlight ?
I am so stoked to see the dark violet flower bloom on this plant and get a decent picture of it, but the weather has not been cooperating so it is iffy ... info: Leprechaun Gold
This corner is going to change a lot but the back plants will be staying.
If you want to know about the "Giant Fleece Flower" there is the link
It is going to be awesome and mad because I have it squeezed in that corner .. I have to sleep with one eye open at night because a lot of my plants are going to be "mad" at me !
I didn't grab one of these beauties last year when it was hyped up ... but this year it sort of got on my good side Rainforest Sunrise
Here it is in a group of happy little campers that are still able to "breath" room wise, but I will soon put a stop to that and crowd in more plants !!
Mandarin Lights azalea is always a great shot of ORANGE (Halloweeny colour for me)
Henrii clematis is actually flowering from the foot of it's vine .. first time I have seen "him" do that!
The red peony is grouped with a white and lime green one ... have to dig around in my tag box to figure out the names ...
I like the cool gray of the Lamb's Ears surrounding the border .. softens the colour and texture.
My Baptisia came back in a perfect circle around my Serviceberry tree amazed me : )
Insane experiment happening here .. yes this is a Tri-Colored European Beech tree ... I am going to dwarf it .. I wanted another Japanese Maple in this area but could not find a cutleaf that I didn't already have .. so this little guy said "pick me" and I did .. we are both in for a ride !
I split my big Ghost fern into two so it flanks each side .. Ripple Effect is still in a pot until I figure out where to put it.
I am attempting the same dwarfing with this Fringe tree ... fingers crossed !
This is one long post on how not to post ... are you snoring yet ?
Almost done !
Garden PA was playing in a golf tournament on the weekend and with a raffle ticket won a basket of garden things so I am the happy camper that has it now ! Thanks sweetie : )
Last picture ... I finally found the right setting for a moon shot in the very dark of night !
So this is how not to post with everything including the kitchen sink ?
