Few posts of late due to technical issues … still, so many blooms and plant combinations this evening the garden we so lovely, I had to share.
The photos do not live up to what I like to post, they are all cell phone photos. Some are not in the best focus, but you get the idea.
Since I live in a clearing in a hardwood forest, I like to let my gardens go somewhat wild with self-sowing perennials punctuated by a few choices of mine. The result is a bed that looks different every year and every season.
There’s no such thing as too much lavender!
The favored rose in my limited rose collection … Star Rose Mystic Meidiland … an everblooming shrub rose with peach-colored buds that fade to pale peach as they mature. Perfect with lavender.
This annual milkweed does not reseed in Connecticut, but it provides a great punch of color and attracts butterflies … hopefully a Monarch or two.
Notice the name of the above hydrangea, yet it’s not blue. It grows in a raised bed created by manufactured concrete blocks that … obviously … raised the soil pH enough to turn the hydrangea this lovely shade of pink.
And, what’s life without a bit of sweetness fresh from the garden …
