Lily Monte Negro ordered from Spring Hill Nursery 3 years ago. The lily foliage is atrocious, but the Rose Campion hides the leaves a bit. For some reason in the picture the pinks are not as harmonious as they are in real life.
Guara and Purple-leaf Sandcherry
Mugo Pine and Ribbon Grass
Black-eyed Susan and Butterfly Weed
Butterfly Weed Close-up. This is the brightest it's ever been. The orange is the highlight of the garden today.
Darwin's Blue Veronica from Bluestone Nurseries. Love this blue in the garden. The picture doesn't show it well, but it is placed within a bed of Shasta Daisies, which really makes the blue pop.
Cryptomeria Black Dragon, Variegated Wigelia, and Shasta Daisies
Love how everyone is leaning to the sun. I think these are Heliopsis, but I am not sure. The grass is Feather Reed Grass, "Overdam".
The mailbox path. You can see the Butterfly Weed in the middle. Hope the monarchs find it!
Claire's Phlox and Spirea in the background
Nothing says summer like Black-eyed Susans
Tsuga canadensis 'Moon Frost' and Heuchera "Coral Bells"
Lavender and Juniper "Mother Lode"
Oakleaf Hydrangea and Astilbe coming into bloom in my dark corner.

|It's been a while since I blogged about my garden! It's such an exciting time of year and there is always so much work to be done. But honestly, there isn't much that I like doing more than getting my hands dirty and putzing around in the garden. I posting a blog because I finally got my camera working. Or should I say my technically-savvy sweetheart did. What's amazing is that he got me a card in my camera that automatically uploads all the pictures I take to my picasa album. That makes it so easy to get them onto the blog and I love easy. So I have no excuses for not getting some pictures up more often. Wish me luck! |
Mt. Laurel I think Carousel, though am not certain on the cultivar
Iris and Fringe Tree (Mt. Laurel is in the background)
Campanula, Veronica, and Daisies with Purple-leaf Sand-cherry in the background
Penstemon, Artemisia, and Thyme
Start of a raised foliage garden. This wall faces north-west and gets too hot in the afternoon for some of the foliage plants I envisioned here. Might have to rethink the whole space.
