While I may not be very experienced when it comes to laying out a garden and choosing complementary plants, the garden does provide bountiful beauty from spring until fall.
Gardening is a learning process filled with errors and rewards.
The reward comes when the garden blooms making it possible to cut a few stems varied in color and texture.
The rhododendrons are all but gone,
but coming in right behind them are peonies changing daily from tight little buds
to partially open teasers
to full blown beauties.
They don’t last long, especially if it rains, so I cut them and fill the house where they can be enjoyed.
Their differing colors and textures make each bloom a special gift. Salvia, which tries to take over my little garden, provides wonderful contrast, and the alium which is past its prime adds an interesting texture.
So grows my garden. It may not be perfect, but the same is not true for the beauties that grow there.
i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind
