I've not done much in the way of moving plants this year, but I am taking stock of everything and have noticed what needs to be divided and what will have to be moved come the fall.
I'm busy making a new garden bed in the front yard, will take photos once it's done. I won't be planting anything there until the fall though, or maybe even next spring. Of course that's what I say now but once I head to the garden centre and see what's on sale, all bets are off!
|I thought I would begin by focusing on a few blooms in my middle garden bed in the back yard. My pincushion flowers are just starting to bloom.|
|Betty Corning clematis has such a lovely bell shaped flower.|
|My explorer rose, John Cabot I believe. This could be considered more of a climbing rose because it produces long canes unlike a shrub like rose.|
|I had to take a photo of this wonky delphinium...still pretty though.|
|I don't remember planting these shasta daisies in my garden bed, but they're doing well enough.|
|Now these rose campions just sprouted up here this year...and just about everywhere else too. I let these grow because they fill up that space quite nicely.|
|Here's one of my new purchases, a morden mum. This will provide a nice shot of colour in the fall garden.|
|White clips - another favourite.|
|My black and white container, looking rather lush.|
|One of my favourite trees, a fernleaf caragana. I can't grow weeping willows here (and it would be too big for this spot even if I could!) so this is the next best thing!|
|I seem to have little luck with my hostas so am relieved to see this one has returned.|
|Two Stella d'Oro's by the front walkway - they always looks good with very little care. You've got to love plants like that!|
