This recent planting was a thrifty addition to the deck.
Variegated grass, geraniums and lobelia all relatively inexpensive at the local garden centre.
I like these reliable plants as they last all season and if you dead head the spent blooms you get a repeat flush of flowers throughout the summer.
These pink geraniums are a surprise because I bought them thinking that they were white!
A fancy variety of primula whose names escapes me at this time...in a vivid shade of cobalt.
A Rothschild variety of azalea....almost ready to open up.
The scent is magnificent!
We purchased it many years ago after visiting Veronica Milner's Garden up island.
She was a master gardener and meeting her was a thrill.
My most vivid memory of our visit was that she was randomly picking weeds as we walked through her gorgeous garden....that and her very English gardening outfit...
a wide brimmed hat worn with a wool skirt, a cashmere twinset and a simple strand of pearls!
Montana reubens a reliable and vigorous clematis.
It has taken over the fence out front and sweetly the scent wafts softly when standing in close proximity.
Fragrant white lilac
hanging gracefully over the fence from our neighbour's garden.
I love these but find that they are short lived when cut and brought indoors.
I'll post more garden images soon...
I've got to tackle some domestic chores and get a move on.
Loving this euphorbia
even though it is an invasive plant I am totally won over by the chartreuse tone.
Green still has a hold on my heart...
plants, seedlings hostas anything that grows green seems to get my attention.
Hope that you've planned to have some fun this week...
I'm looking forward to a walkabout and tea at The Abkhazi Gardens this week with a friend.
I will take lots of pictures to share them with you in a future post.
Thanks for stopping by...
