Welcome back to my garden!
Enjoy the tour...
The shady backyard is full of colorful foliage and varying textures:
Ferns, Japanese Maples, Leopard Plants, Caladiums
The front perennial beds are in full color this month.
Bee Balm, Daylilies, Ox-Eye Daisies
Purple Coneflower, Catmint, Salvias, Mexican Milkweed
The crape myrtles are in bloom, too
Caladiums, Summer Phlox, Canna, Oxalis,
and Creeping Jenny add color to the front walk.
I'm sure enjoying the fountain I purchased earlier this year!
I love the spikes of 'Morden's Pink' Loosestrife
against the dark foliage of the 'King Humbert' Canna
The Rudbeckia and Cosmos add a little yellow and orange
among the pinks and blues.
I'm having the best green bean and tomato crop ever this summer.
Last year at this time we had already begun our journey to a summer of record-breaking temps and drought. But this year we have had milder temps and ample rainfall. Sweet relief! No complaints from this gardener :-)
