This year some of the gardens are beginning to approach that coveted "mature planting" status. Here are some shots around our yard:
Our hydrangeas are finally taking off.
Coneflowers (echinacia) are among my favorites.
I love that this little teapot's feet are swinging in the breeze.
One of our local markets had stems of this plant - gooseneck loosestrife (or Lysimachia clethroides for the experts) for sale for $3.00/ stem. Maybe I should set up a stand in the driveway.
Container gardening counts, too! Love this Picasso in Pink petunia.
Sweet potato vine, hens and chickens (sempervivum) and one of many bowls of beach stones.
A fellow blogger recently commented that she hadn't had time to do anything creative as she was busy in her garden. Creativity isn't limited to paper, paint, and ink - anything that makes life more beautiful is creative. Turning empty spaces into spots of beauty is definitely creative - and lots of work!
