chicky your clematis are all beauties and your lupins inspire me to try them again for the first time in twenty years-wish i had a stone wall.
the first peony ive raised from seed that i think is really fine-petals like tissue with a faint veining of pink
i look at my garden-or gardens- as a series of big pictures that contain a multitude of small pictures. people-particularly nongardners look at the big picture and say beautiful but it is the small pictures that usually have the most interest. i usually dont plant a lot of the same thing because i find interest wanes fairly swiftly. i understand what rosarians and hosta freaks are about but im not sure they are gardening in the sense that i think most of us mean the words. as for plant placement i just noticed the astilbe sinensis has picked up and moved two feet further into the shade-it really is hard to argue with ma nature.
cooler the next few days but warm and windy today-start getting restless and ready to be on the road this time of year. nice snapdragons-from seed? drought here has gone from severe to extreme.
lizzie the white flowers in the mountain picture are caltha leptosepala-white marsh marigold. has it stopped raining? 33C here today
home is the hunter home from hill and planting dahlias-though taking pix is more fun and garden gazing best of all
eryngium bourgattii looking very lush
and a much spinier seedling
is this what you mean-seriously, de gustibus........
was it mark twain who said god must have loved beetles and poor people, he made so many of them
memorial day-still early spring in the humboldt range
watching clouds go by
lord of all he surveys
