Welcome to my garden journal. Just testing for now. Hope you enjoy the photos.
Early Spring. Money Penny in full bloom with the dogwoods. Shame on me for not having my urn planted! I love the deep, dark woods, they add such mystery to my garden.
The money penny came from seed from my mom. I've been growing them for about 20 years. I think it is such a beautiful color with the spring greens. Tulips are usually in bloom during this time, but for some reason, mine didn't have a good showing this year. I spent a fortune on them too. I guess the weird weather got to them this year. you can just see the black tulips on the left there.
Next up are the bearded iris. I don't get much direct sunlight - about 2 hours a day. Still, I get a decent bloom on the iris. Nothing like it would be if there was full sun.
I used to have some Thrift (phlox) and it looked really pretty with the iris. I need to think about buying more. It looks pretty haning over the rocks.
Next I'll post pictures of June and July. They were beautiful months.
