Your garden is quite lovely! It's interesting to see what grows well in other zones, along with the plant choices of other gardeners.

I covet your foxgloves (I finally have a part shade spot and planted a few this year...waiting for blooms).

Thanks for sharing,
Cameron

Cameron - those are one of my favorites too - Sometimes they reseed and I give them a wide berth! :) I'm reading a book by Celia Thaxter called "An Island Garden." She calls nature a chemist (referring to how things grow in certain counties but not in others). have a great sunday!

You have lots of height in your garden by using the foxglove,iris, and false indigo. Something I need more of.

I love your false indigo. What a pretty color it is, that light yellow. Your wood fence is a perfect backdrop for your flowers. Very pretty.
