Morning Glory





It’s a jungle out there

28 05 2009

Shot of our front yard garden taken this afternoon…

Just past bloom: White & purple Bearded Iris and Purple Sensation Allium 

Debuting now: Beard’s Tongue, Catmint, Veronica Speedwell, Creeping Thyme, Sweet William, Penstemon, Rose Campion (blush pink-white and bright pink varieties), Hellebores, Sedum, Yellow Yarrow, Nasturtium, White Dianthus, Pink Phlox, Hosta flowers, Ageratum, Evening Primrose ‘Lemon Drop’, Strawflower, Geraniums 

Very-soon-to-bloom: Globe Thistle, Lavender (various), Coreopsis, Tickseed, Lilies (various) and Salvia

And later in the seasonButterfly bush (pink, yellow, purple varieties), Coneflower (various varieties)

Platycodon Balloon Flower (purple and white varieties), Shasta Daisies, Black-eyed Susan, Monarda Bee Balm, Lamb’s Ear, Morning Glory ‘Heavenly Blue’, Sedum ‘Autumn Joy’, Maximilian sunflower

Ha! And this is just the list of plants in the front yard. Proof enough that I’m a gardener obsessed.

Got a question for my fellow gardeners…what is the weed (looks a lot like the tops of celery plants or almost cilantro-looking leaf) that is taking over my entire garden in spades? Why have I not noticed this prolific pest in previous years? Is it a new invasive? Do I need to photograph it for identification?

Glories of the morning

22 08 2008

In my opinion, a garden without ‘Heavenly Blue’ morning glories is incomplete. Their (fleeting) beauty will take your breath away! It was serendipitous that this morning’s blooms happened to fall right next to my new slate “bloom” sign. After I shot this one, I turned and saw my first pink morning glory bloom on the gazebo.

My lushest garden ever…

5 02 2008

As always, I am so looking forward to another gardening season…I shot these of our townhouse garden in summer 2006. This was one of the lushest growing seasons ever for our garden. The shot of the massive bank of morning glory blooms was taken in the front (side) yard, and the shot with the front steps was also taken in the front yard. All the other photos were from the backyard garden. Not too bad for a tiny plot of land, eh?
