It is a Beautiful Day!

It is a beautiful day here! Sunny, breezy about 80 degrees. After a week of VERY hot and humid weather it is nice to actually have seasonable weather. I wish I could go sit in the garden and work on the laptop. Unfortunately I’ve got to go into the office for a while. I don’t have a lot to say for myself otherwise. Below are a few pictures from the garden today. Unfortunately the heat last week wiped out a lot of the flowers (including the peonies). Fortunately I try to plant a lot of perennials with nice foliage to compensate for the short lived flowers of many perennials.


The garage with window boxes & hanging basket (filled with a beautiful lipstick begonia)

Close up of shade garden in front of the garage (I love the japanese painted fern with the hosta, grasses, ferns & hellebores)

Another close up of the shade garden (astibes popping out of autumn joy sedum and hostas)

The sunny side garden (yarrow just budding out with salvia)
