Only a few more days...
This rain sure won't hurt...
What's getting ready to put on a show in your yard?
Carol in Jacksonville
Carol, I love hydrangeas! congrats on your blooms. I had a lot of hydrangeas in one of my past gardens in Mass., it was a shady garden.
Drift Roses and finally Calladiums.......
Silvia, you had a SHADE garden? I would have never guessed. Is this before you became the Queen of Fruits and Vegetables? I bet your hydrangeas were gorgeous - I think the ones up north look better - the leaves on mine get pretty stressed in another 3-4 weeks - ugly brown spots and margins from the sun.
Hey Walli - I love that big red one in the back... is that the caladium they call Brandywine? Boy, you waited long enough for your caladium this year... maybe because of all of your shade gardening and the ground took awhile to warm up? Just a thought.
Mark, that is a beautiful arrangement of plants and colors, it looks like a painting!
Carol, in my previous lives I had many different type of gardens, always grown fruits and vegetables since I was a child. You would of love one of my front gardens in New York, people passing by took pictures and stayed to look at it. It was the first bulb type of garden in spring, I don't remember how many bulbs that I had, they were brought from Holland and they all came like a symphony and I also copied the gardens in the Cloisters.
A unique front garden that I had was the one in Arizona, xeriscape, Wild West type decorations and cactus and succulents galore! It was like Toombstone, had beautiful roses in the back...
