Oregon has had such crazy summer weather which has meant interesting things for our garden. Here is our garden view - everything is getting so big!
Partial shade garden: hydrangea, hostas, ferns, corsican mint and spagnum moss
The Orchid Primroses before getting planted right by my strawberries, oregano, deliphiniums and fig tree.
Latest addition is this stunning Orchid Primrose which is a perennial.
I am also in love with this little wild flower that seems to want to try and take over my pond area.
Ebb tide roses...
My black obsidian heuchera thanks to Michele and Greg!
A garden view...
A plant Brian and David gave me from their yard is now blooming!
The corsican mint has officially taken over!
These two rose bushes are now doing very poorly since the shade is getting more and more heavy where they are at so they are going to be relocated soon.
New additions throughout the shade garden.
The fence replacement project - here is the hole duig to remove the large chunk of concrete removed from the ground from the prior chain link fencing so the guys could set the second fence post. The first fence post is set up against the other fence.
The fence replacement project - here is the stump from the birch tree - you can see all the wood chips to the right from where Patrick used the stump grinder to eliminate the rest and to the direct right of the stump is the large chunk of concrete removed from the ground from the prior chain link fencing so the guys could set the second fence post.
Thanks to Ikea (lanterns), Home Depot (chain) and my husband we now have lovely hanging lanterns in our cedars for our table.
Elephant garlic and dragonfly.
Trying to get the dragonfly to fall for my tattoo while Scott, Patrick and Spencer brew beer in the background.
Our little friend toured the whole yard for quite a bit of time posing here and there.
The dragonfly seemed to really enjoy the pond area.
Honey bee and Thyme
