A few pictures before I go on a short July Fourth hiatus.
My overgrown pond area. I let feverfew bloom unhindered and the iris made it through the winter and bloomed beautifully- it surprised me. The waterlilies need division, you can’t really see the water.
These pictures show my present attraction to purple cream and gold combinations. The purple leaf tree is Prairie fire crabapple with the Coreopsis verticillata coming into bloom; that is ‘Goldflame‘ spirea in the foreground.
I tried Salpiglossis in the containers, and Schizanthus, which presently isn’t doing so well due to overwet conditions from the rains. They were happier when the pots got to dry out a little. “Grandma Garden” hues in these pots. Everything bright and cheerful as a colorful patched quilt.
