Another Garden Update!

The pond and its new additions: Calamint and Hardey Gloxinia.

My ivy and balloon flowers.

Here we see the new Purple Double Hollyhock and Turkish Fig tree start.

Here is the new Lupine ‘Camelot’ which is already a stunning addition.

I added the Cheddar Pinks ‘Red Beauty’ which really pops here against my fennel and herbs.

The new shade garden under my maple tree where I added: Heuchera ‘Ginger Ale’, Trillium Vaseyl (Red Nodding Trillium), Galium Odoratum/Sweet Woodruff, Mahonia Aquifolium.Tall Oregon Grape, Gymnocarpium Dryopteris/Oak Fern, Asarum Caudatum/Wild Ginger, Heuchera ‘Lemon Chiffon’ Coral Bells, and Iris Missouriensis/Western Blue Iris

My new Oak Fern which I am in love with!

Another deep shade area where I added Lemon Catnip, Blue Mouse Ears Hosta, and a Hardy Geranium.

To the far right you can see my new Labrador Violet which I love so much under the maple I had to get this one and plant it in a more prominent spot.

And here you can see the fence we are planning to replace and also continue so that we will not longer have our neighbor's exposure there.

The full shade garden under the cedar trees where we just added Spiraea ‘Goldflame’, Japanese Holy Fern, Silver Vein Creeper (Parthenocissus Henryana), a blue morning glory vine, and Nandina/Heavenly Bamboo ‘Firepower’.

Here you can see the new Spiraea ‘Goldflame’ which Patrick picked out for the shade garden.

Here is the Nandina and Japanese Holy Fern that Patrick picked out.

The sun garden where I just planted in the lower left side of this picture Mint Julep Spearmint, Golden Garden Sage, and Setcreasea ‘Purple Heart’.

This is the new fencing we are picking up to replace the old fencing on one side of our yard - we are splitting the price of everything with our awesome next door neighbor.


  1. I love your garden and your conscientious use of shade and sun.
