SUMMER IS UPON US

And there is still much to do in the garden. However, the hot temps keep planning down to thoughts and diagrams. I've got some big plans for this fall though.


I am so happy with the big urn I planted this spring. It has just filled out so nicely. I love, love, love the Euphorbia, Diamond Frost. It's just wonderful, and I love it with the Asparagus Fern and the white impatience. I've decided to make this whole little shade garden green and white. It's been fun thinking about what to plant. I've got to get rid of the awful pink azalea. I may replace it with a nice white one, but I'm thinking of something that blooms later because the azaleas bloom before the hostas get any good growth on them.





I loved this astilbe. I thought I was getting a late blooming one when I purchased it late last year. It had a bloom on it, so I just figured it would be blooming with the black eyed susans. Oh well, a nice surprise. Maybe it will bloom twice!

I think it really makes a nice spot in the May garden.

I have mixed feelings about the lily in this photo below. I've just never been very happy with it and I hope to find something to replace it with. In the mean time, it does an adequate job.


Now, the lily below I LOVE. It is just the cutest thing and the blooms lasted a nice long time. I'm not good with keeping up with the names of things. I can't remember if it was Lollipop, or something like that. Anyway, I hope it multiplies rapidly.



This garden is in the works. It still needs a lot of work.




That's all for now, I'll have some June pictures next.
