After a couple weeks of rain, sunshine looks pretty good! So, I thought I would take advantage of the moment and take a few photos of our backyard flower beds. Our backyard isn’t very large, it is about 40 feet deep and 90 feet wide and borders a city park.
This space is between our house and the neighbors. The dark burgundy shrub/tree is an Elderberry, the bright green plant is oregano and the tall pink flowers are foxglove. The tall grass on the left is a grass called Karl Forrester.
My funky gate has been painted many time and many colors. Now, it sits in a flower bed surrounded by Hostas, hardy geraniums, foxglove and ferns.
This beautiful rose is called “Westerland”.
The rose arbor is coved by the yellow Abraham Darby rose and the pink is Compassion….in the background is the orange rose, Westerland.
This is a peony aptly named “Bowl of Beauty”!
