Are you ready for some eye candy?
Then, have I got a treat for you.
So come join me on a garden walk again.
The iris and a smattering of clematis reigned supreme for a couple weeks…
but now the roses and foxgloves are taking center stage.
My Warsaw Nike clematis is still showing off and will for most of the summer. I have to keep tying it higher and higher. I love this Clematis, it just does not quit.
This is my back stairs. Now from the other side,
Warsaw is snuggled up to my Grandpa Nute Rose.
There is a story behind that rose, and I have told it before, but I shall tell it again
In places, the garden is getting way ahead of me…
believe it or not, there is a pathway thru there somewhere, complete with stepping stones.
Look close and see if you can find it.
My Tess rose is nearly covering the arbor on one side. I have Eden on the other but I am planning on putting another Tess Rose in its place so there is red on both sides of the arbor. Eden will get a nice new home.
Eden will get a nice new home.
Somewhere, around here.
Canterbury Bells provide a splash of purple in what is now a more pink garden.
Soon the garden with be dominated by yellows and oranges.
Below are my Gaillardias, another tough, drought resistant, never stops blooming performer.
Foxglove, this one leans towards a creamy yellow in color. The only one like it in my garden.
This is barely a smidge of my floral abundance right now but your eyes would glaze over if I kept going
I am not sure why but the deer are not coming around.
Last night they were in my neighbors back yard but they did not even glance over here.
I do have some tiny wind chimes hooked to different plants and the deer are startled by them when they chime, they run off lickety split.
Maybe a new tactic to discourage the deer???
Good bye for now, come again. I will have more to share…and I love sharing.
