RE: 8 pics zone 5

What a beautiful garden. I really liked the pretty pony in the background too!

I am originally from Elgin Ill so your pics made me just a bit homesick. Only a bit though, 'cause I know that in a couple of months you will have snow and I have turned into a wimp over the last twenty years. Anything less than 70 degrees and I am running for a coat.

RE: 8 pics zone 5 again

It's me again. I was just browsing through your photo album - what a great collection - and I saw this photo titled "sedum 'angelina' stealing scene ".

That is a fantastic bed! Can you tell me what the plant is that has the very large yellowish leaves? The whole bed is a real show-stopper!

RE: 8 pics zone 5

It's the same canna as in the other pictured pot- bengal tiger aka pretoria
