Johnson's blue Geranium..is at it's best in it's spots here in our gardens..I have placed it here and there..
I recommend this perennial although..yet again.. short lived..
Also..Big Daddy Hostas..they have blue in them..so pretty not your normal hosta..I met them years ago in an art class..we visited a magnificent private garden..
I was taken aback by the magnificence of her Big Daddy hostas ..get ready for BIG in yrs to come..mine are big..but you have not seen anything until you have seen years of Big Daddy growth.
I don't know if you remember the fern..the wee thin fern unfurling quite uniquely ..a few..Spring posts back?
There she stands in back of Johnson's Blue..sandwiched in between the fushia urn..
LOVE that fern.
A client gave it to me prior to selling his home...he didn't want to leave it..
I have been the grateful caretaker ever since..
That DELICIOUS salad..is from Cheri..
I made it Monday for lunch..we will have it again this week..
Then I will buy more kale..massage it again..
And we will enjoy it again and again..I love the texture the kale developed..
I added feta instead of Blue.. and more garlic since we are on a Dr Oz garlic kick..although for this post blue would have been in keeping.
It's so good!
The porch ferns and blues look so much better than the winter whites on the porch..
What a difference a season makes.
Lucas..will be 9 this August..
On father's day..everyone was here.. and lots of giggly games were played with the 4 cousins..
At one point I took out bubbles..because..
I love bubbles..and Oli at 4 still does too..
Lucas is so good natured and so good with children younger than he.. he even blew bubbles which encouraged the others to do so..
He's something else:)♥
Like that fuschia..:) The purpley blue pinafore/tutu is just gorgeous..these are ballerinas!
I love Campanula Glomerata..One mistake I made here..is that I did not plant in threes..many I eventually could divide and make 3's..but this one..I should have bought 3:) Some plants multiply and multiply..Hostas can come out of your ears..but are great fillers..
Glomerata..seems to stay compact..so..buy 3:)
I love CLUMPS of threes~
My cobalt pots will follow me to a retirement home if they can..
They are Lee-Ann blue pots to me♥
PS..A good little book to get you kickstarted in choosing garden plants..is "Taylor's Guide To Perennials"
I have had mine for soo many years..it has been lent out..
The price at the back says $22.95..I bet on resellers you can get it for a song! Don't even think twice about it..
It is classified by colors.. also..
Mine is close to falling apart now..
Hope you can get your hands on a copy..
School's out in a few short breaths.. they will be boys of summer again~
