Stepping out on the deck is like walking into a gardeners paradise. This grouping is all in containers and forms a beautiful wall of color to enjoy while dining al fresco.
Tucked behind the banana is this delightful water feature
Walking down toward the gardens you get a glimpse of great things to come....
|Love, love, love this combination of Anemone with variegated Dogwood|
|Amaranthus, Canna and Tithonia|
|How come my Liriope never looks this good????|
|Love that the centers of the rudbeckia are the same color as the Colocasia 'Diamond Head'|
|Love the blue Caryopteris echoing the color of the blue container|
|The marvelous, packed with personality, famed canine model Oliver, Glen of Imaal Terrier|
|Perennial begonia, what's not to love?|
|Colocasia 'Thailand Giant'|
|Love this footie container|
|The Picea orientalis 'Skylands' is superb|
|Everywhere you look is another beautiful vignette|
|Perfect ceramic sculpture for the Lambs Ears|
|Love that Arundo donax ont he left of this image. Sadly that isn't hardy in Zone 5 where I live...|
|The Lespedeza thunbergii is gorgeous this time of year....|
So it's back to the drawing board for me. Every time I visit this garden I plan for how I can add more shrubs and grasses to my gardens here.... I think it's time to dig up more of the front lawn..
