This Winter I pruned the heck out of the horsechesnut tree. Didn't seem to mind. Hummingbird magnet. The heucheras in flower around the base pick up the color. Hollyhocks are jumping up there too. Daffodil detritus looks kinda unsightly, don't it? Love the white/gray plant...dusty miller is it? Got them nice purple lavender flowers to the left. I potted up my rosemary christmas trees there on the right. I also put gladiolas in the half barrel there on the left bottom that contains a dahlia and they're shooting up now. In fact I noticed all the dahlias I just left in pots over the Winter are emerging! Yay! Anyways, thanks for looking.

Very pretty! I love the horsechestnut tree, I've seen them around but I didn't know what they were.

Thank you for sharing!
