July in 1b garden
For those who requested, here's a few shots of my yard. This is a large perennial border that was my first garden bed. It has heavy clay soil, and has undergone many changes, but never satisfies me. Some days it looks good, but lots of times it doesn't.
This is along my garden path where the wild look took hold. Clustered bellflower and echium were blooming when I took this shot. You can see centaurea blooming too. The daylilies are the common type but they do great under the birch. I have a barrier to keep them in bounds. I thought I'd weeded out all the gallardia, but I see it had other ideas.
I put more thought into my front yard hosta bed, but then the mountain ash tree blew down in a storm. I had to move the hostas that couldn't handle the resulting sun. So again, my plan was foiled.
Another area full of Canada violet. I had 2 clematis planted here, but I guess it's time to declare them dead. Too bad.
