wisteria and peonies. Next will come the roses and hydrangeas. Next to bloom are the hollyhocks, shasta daisies, gladioli, dahlia, hosta, jasmine, daylilies and finally the cannas. The bed is mostly underplanted with flowering sweet woodruff. Up until Christmas we usually have some scraggly roses and hydrangeas hanging on until January when we prune back, (remember, California). Then it starts all over again.
"pinched back" in order to create a fuller plant and so missed my window, but they still look beautiful.
Please excuse my iphone pics.
Butter by London? It's a true lacquer, this is just one coat of Blowing Raspberries. It flows so easily, it makes me want to throw out my other polish.
You can imagine what I'm about to do. Yes, weed and deadhead. Today with my silly new granddog as company!
