Here in the Northwest we have had an extra large dose of rain this spring, in spite of it, or maybe because of it, everything is growing.....like weeds, including the weeds.
The blossoms are taking a beating tho', roses blooms are turning to mush and peonies a laying down.....this to will pass.....today's forecast is DRY! Hooray!
Thought I would share a new "pretty" I purchased this weekend at an art fair......a hand-blown glass orb to float in my water feature along with some Japanese glass floats.
The water feature and rose arbor line the sidewalk to the front door.
Welcome to my house....I am no "shrinking violet" when it comes to color, LOVE IT!
Also, love the red child's chair and the watering can with the purple of Petunias and Heliotrope.
The Heliotrope will add it's wonderful, welcoming, vanilla fragrance.
This is a difficult west facing location....the area is in shade most of the day until late afternoon when the hot sun shines in....so I am trying a sedum "Aeonium Zwartkop" and sedum "Angelina" in a pot. If, they are not getting enough light I will be able to move them into the sun.....for some light therapy!
The same is true of the other pots, I'll move as needed.
View from above and the final flourish.... a basket full of flowerpots and old garden tools!
I started journaling where and what I planted, years ago, because every spring I would be digging up plants I'd forgotten I had planted.....still do that sometimes... but now I can look back and figure out what it was I just destroyed! Haha!
