I’m not an in-your-face kind of person, but when it comes to my garden, all bets are off. I just want to grab people by the lapels and go, “Look at my roses! Look at that fuschia! Look at those delphiniums!” And since I can’t do that in real life, I’ll do that here.
Let’s start with the red sweet peas:
And we’ve got my orange Just Joey roses. Even though the rose pests have been legion this year, it’s doing really well.
I am madly in love with this yellow flower, which I bought last summer. For the life of me, I can’t remember the name; I think it’s a kind of rudbeckia.
I’ve got delphiniums on steroids this year. I’ve had to stake them, which I didn’t have to do last year. Oh, they are heart-stoppingly gorgeous!
I also have this Mexican bush sage, which is growing robustly in a large pot. It was grown from a tiny little slip my grandmother gave me, maybe eight or so years ago. Grandma is no longer alive to see it, but I suspect she’s smiling on it from that garden in the sky.
And I’ll close with this Bewitched rose, just to add a little pink to the picture.
What is YOUR favorite color to have in the garden?
