If you are back to enjoy another garden tour you will not be disappointed. The flowers are flourishing this summer.
Last year I added a new daisy, it is called Crazy Daisy and I just love it.
Its frilly and fanciful.
And just plain fun!
I actually have 3 Crazy Daisy plants placed about, and they are all unique. The one above has short and fluffy petals, while its sister, below has long lacy petals that drape elegantly.
There is an abundance of blossoms on each plant.
I don’t think Crown Princess Margareta likes the spot she is in, she has not done well at all the past two summers so come Fall I shall move her. This is the best bloom I have gotten from her so far.
I was quite pleasantly surprised to find this clematis blooming on the same trellis as William Baffin rose. I had forgotten I planted a clematis with each climbing rose. This one is more blue that Warsaw Nike, I just cannot recall the name.
I love when things cross pollinate. This is larkspur, the pink has crossed with the purple. I had another like this last year in an entirely different part of the garden.
The Black Eyed Susans have just begun to bloom. The will carry on from now until frost providing non-stop happy color.
A overall view from the side street.
As I have mentioned before though yellow and orange seem to have taken over I do have some pink flowers still too.
Petal Pusher roses
a delicate pink yarrow.
And a late blooming iris in lavender.
Of course there is Audrey…my trombolina zucchini starting to creep out of the hot bed. I need to build a sturdy trellis for her.
My very first David Austin English rose, I bought it on clearance eons ago. I had heard a little about the English roses when I spotted this poor guy, it was on clearance because it looked so poorly. I don’t know if the nursery failed to care for it properly or what but it was to my benefit. I felt sorry for it and took it home on the cheap and fell in love with how English roses perform in my garden.
I will leave you with one of my latest favorites. this little delicate rose is a trooper. The delicate little white roses cover this thing, and are not bigger than a nickel. This lovely little trooper blooms along the ground and roots wherever it touches.
It adds an airy feel to the garden.
I am glad you could join me for this latest edition of my garden.
All it needs is Pink Flamingos! I have two personal scouts out tracking me down some as we speak.
Come see what I have been up to in my studio!
