Since my front walk is my most finished area, I thought you might want to take a peek with me… and see what is blooming…. This is Pinky-Winky Hydrangea…it is new this year for me, and I just love it. It is right by the garage doors and one of the first things you see.
In the metal bucket is a rose bush I need to get in the ground, but it is blooming happily for now….. yes, the sun is behind me…lol.
The ferns in my window boxes are great again this year. They look nice with the hostas and hydrangeas. This is my shady spot, it only gets morning sun. There is foxglove, delphiniums and hollyhocks here too, they are not blooming this week.
My Nikko-Blue starts, I hope one of the three make it! I should have done this in the spring….but we will see…..
A bit of blue with my bachelor buttons but tons of foliage…..
My big Nikko blue that is not blooming this year. I think a late frost got them.
But that is okay, I love the shades of green and all the different textures.
The burgundy is Plum Pudding Heucherella and Red Sedum. It adds a bit of color.
Some sweet Alyssum from seed adds a bit of white and smells so nice.
A purple coneflower has popped up near the front, but I have yet to move it.
I love all the color in this bed, it is wild…but fun I think.
Here you can see both sides better.
I just cannot get over how much it has grown and filled in. Last year you could see huge areas of mulch and spaces between all the plants. I love it this way, but another bonus it to divide and start more new areas….lol.
I have several fall blooming things, so my garden really kicks into high gear this time of year. And hopefully we will have more time to enjoy it. The girls go back to school Thursday, so maybe I can start working in the mornings again.
Hope your weekend is going well….Brooke
