First impressions mean a lot. We can tell ourselves otherwise, but as gardeners we have a general impression if we like something or not in the blink of an eye.
So with that in mind, I spend quite a bit of time designing the area around my arbor.
Here are some pictures from today showing all that is in bloom. I am very happy with this much color despite our heat and humidity.
I can tell you, I do water frequently and deadhead.
But I say it is the plants I chose that keep it looking nice.
I am especially fond of the Double Knockout Roses.
This area is seen from the entire front walk the way it bends slightly outward.
Making it perfect for pictures down the front walkway.
And from the road and wildflower garden.
Thanks so much for stopping by and Happy Gardening!
