The garden is looking decent considering the weather and lack of rain. Note my grass is nowhere as green as Beerhog's.

Annabelle is the only hydrangea blooming this year..late freeze got the rest

Glad I got something started and glad to know I will have stuff to look at all weekend.

That's a BIG border Kaye! I like the way it curves around. My Annabelle hydrangea is full of blooms this year but my others didn't do well. I don't remember having a late freeze here. I was thinking it might've been an early hard freeze before they were hardened off. I remember my Japanese maple froze before it ever got its fall colors then its leaves just turned brown and held on all winter. It's never done that before.

My dream garden! Just no words to describe the beauty of it.

Kaye, I just spent a half an hour looking at your garden album. Wow! Just Wow!

What you have done is amazing....bed by bed by bed by bed. Thanks for sharing.

I am surprised to see that tropicals like banana plants and hibiscus thrive there, too. Do you need to cover them in the winter?

As an Ozarks gardener wannabe, I could ask you a million other questions, and probably will once I have the dirt to dig my hands into.

WOW! Now thats a nice garden! I only hope mine will look half as good when the plants get bigger and when I finally get done with this place. I am just staring, I am only one year into trying to turn what was a forest of scrub into a yard and garden. A year ago, you could not even walk through here for the briars, sprouts, weeds, and mess. Its been a massive amount of work, but worth it. Hopefully someday I will get there and can post some nice pictures.

A beautiful garden, I hope you don't mind I printed it off and maybe it will give me incentive to get off my lazy behind and get started planting, I have my starts of flowers I moved down from Ia still in pots! Thanks for sharing your beautiful garden. Helen

Sorry to be so late in getting back..it's been a bad summer and the well has not had a break. I love coming here as everyone in the same area can relate to what we've been going thru..though I hear you lucky guys further north have had rain! Even 30 miles north has had what we've missed. I took a few pictures this week and there is link below. Thankfully, we only hit the mid 90's the last few and things are looking okay. I can't tell you how much I am looking forward to fall!

Jan, the banana trees will come back in the mild winters we have here sometimes..I don't take chances and always save a few. I don't think the tropical hibiscus would make it. We take them in in the winter.

Thanks, Kaye.

If our plans to move to NW AR come through, we will be in zone 6a. I have a feeling the winter there will be too hard for the tropicals to make it without some babying along, but I look forward to trying.

I love the little Buckwheat plant! Got any seeds to share??

What a beautiful garden!!! I'm so envious! Beerhog is so good at starting things.

Beautiful pics, Kaye. My hydrangea's also got zapped by a late freeze this year. For the first time in years, I got no blooms from them.
