For some reason, I’ve had a lot of interest today on this much neglected blog. It had a good result: I thought of a reason to post!
I normally only give close up shots of flowers, so how about some pictures with a bigger view of the hot mess of plants I have?
A little patch out front, nice and shady for hostas. Lovely purple blooms going well with white gladiolus and some orange crocosmia.
More crocosmia (lucifer this time) with roses and a grey willow “weed tree”. I’ve clematis, Passion flower, and wisteria growing up this tree, and the little birds just love to perch in it.
More out front hot mess. I took this because I’m in love with a grass for the first time.
My raspberries. I had four plants to start with. Enough said.
The Not-Sweet-Pea. It is perennial, and I fight every year to get it to grow up, not down. I think I finally won, and managed to make it stand up!
Pots? I got pots. Thankfully the car is small so I can take up half the driveway with potted plants.
Another rose corner.
This used to be grass. An older picture as the Not-Sweet-Pea is big, but not in bloom yet.
Looking the other direction from the previous picture, in the same strip that used to be grass beside the driveway.
So there you go, some wider views of my plants. Imagine if I had a large garden!
I’ll leave you with a new favourite (in close up, of course).
