Not complaining, but these downpours really put a damper on going out to see what’s blooming in the garden, so….
on these rainy days I brought some of the garden indoors.
sink above, is a new addition in utility room/downstairs potty/ mud/ laundry room. Mirror will be painted & antiqued with Annie Sloan paints and the room will be painted. Still contemplating colours.
Pictures taken between the raindrops, here is what’s in the garden …
Styrax obassia delightful, fragrant, small tree that shades the entrance to the Potager
Chinese Snowball Viburnum ( Viburnum macrocephalum)
Azaleas (Rhododendron indica ) and Cranberrybush Viburnum (Viburnum opulus ) always good companions. LOVE the lime green phase of this shrub.
Viburnum ‘Kern’s Pink is what the label said. (Viburnum picatum ‘Kern’s Pink’) My plant has never seen even a blush. Beautiful none the less.
A few Clematis too.
Every spring I have posted about the Wordsworth meadow, however, what follows the daffodils is just as exciting. It took a lot less work too.
Two native plants allowed to seed themselves over a period of time Trillium cuneatum and Phlox divaricata.
This is the reward for allowing the seeds to form & ripen before the meadow is cut. Need I mention this has taken 17 years?
I have been away from the blog a long time. Life happens, things change, gardens and blogs sometimes must be put aside while other issues of life are addressed.
The garden, while it has suffered some neglect, is very grateful for the attention it is getting now. Major changes about to happen! Stay tuned.
