Thank you for sharing your lovely garden ! It is very satisfying to see your hard work come to life , isn't it ??
Do you have a love for spiderwort ? I had some before and they grew like crazy . One day I wore white capris in my beds just gathering flowers and the blue flowers of the spiderworts rubbed off on my capris ! It wasn't something I expected ! Lol
In 5 years I'm looking forward to seeing your hydrangea tunnel ! What hydrangeas did you use ? It may be sooner than that ! :)

It looks lovely, and I too would love to see the hydrangea tunnel as it develops. What was your inspiration?

The only thing is all the pictures posted sideways. If you upload to a host like Photobucket and use the html code, that should be fixed.

Thanks for the photobucket advice. Looks good to me on a Mac. Sorry. The hydrangeas I used were Semmes Beauty Oak leaf hydrangea & my inspiration was from the Dec 2012 issue of Fine Gardening ! Thanks !

I found the article! :) Thank you, Cenepk. Now I want an hydrangea tunnel too. I have one oakleaf that I planted last spring. I wonder if I can take some cuttings and get this started for next spring. Hmmmmm.....

The pictures show up correctly on your computer because when you downloaded them off your phone, your computer automatically corrected the orientation. But my computer, also a Mac, isn't speaking to your phone so doesn't have the pictures orientated correctly. It's a case of technology getting ahead of itself. And using the image hosting codes will allow you to put multiple pictures into a single post (if you want).

Here is a link that might be useful: Hydrangea tunnel

You have a lovely collection of plants, I see you also have Lady's Mantle, I love this plant and have a LOT myself but it you don't want it all over the place don't let it go to seed deadhead the spent flowers or you'll have them popping up everywhere, ask me how I know this :(.

RE: Tour of my garden

Love the color of the rose in your first pic! So pretty!

It's obvious you have done a lot of work all by yourself! So many pretty plants that will be even prettier as they mature. Hope you will update us on how your garden grows.

Lovely! Quick tip: take all of your photos in landscape mode with the bottom of your phone to your right and you will never have orientation issues.
