So very lush!
Very meadowesque. You'ld fit right in, here in the hills and hollers.
The morning light shows your garden to be a blooming wonderland. The foxgloves are really putting on a show, good job with the seed raising. What is that incredible iris? Those colors are the most beautiful I have ever seen.
Les, "Lush" is an adjective I'm hearing a lot of these days, and it doesn't seem to have anything to do with my drinking.Christopher, "Meadowesque" is a new one, but there is definitely supposed to be a meadow in the center of the garden.Frances, that's a Pacific Coast hybrid iris ('PCH'); a hybrid whose parents may be any of the seven species that grow near the coast from California to Oregon. This particular one may have a name, but I don't know it. I call it 'the Victorian'. It's been very generous with the flowers this year cranking out one after another, and forming a nice clump. I plan to divide it in the fall. Would you like a piece of rhizome? They grow in dappled sunlight and should be hardy down to 10 deg F.
So sunny, lush and colorful. I love it. That is an incredible looking iris!
I particularly like the last photo with your Echium reaching out like a tentacled space alien from a B movie.Your Digitalis is impressive too. I think I've already put it on a planning list for next year, thanks to some of your earlier postings.
Wow, that foxglove is outta sight! I didn't realize the blooms fade out to light pink so nicely...now I can't wait for mine to grow up already!
Did you have your coffee in one hand while taking those garden shots? Love'em.
Hi Chuck, I would love a piece of the iris. Our minimun temp is supposed to be 10 degrees, but maybe I would want to bring it into an unheated space that stayed above freezing? Let me know when the right time is and I will send you my address. A million thanks, and anything I have you might be interested in growing? Say it and it's yours. ;->
I really love the last picture, with the echium hanging out on the right side. Gives you a nice sense of its imposing scale. :)
What a treat for the eyes! Thank you for the great photos and for sharing your beautiful garden!
Well! I see everyone beat me to the comments on that gorgeous iris! Love the pictures Chuck, your garden is flawless.-Randy
Oh, baby, that Poppy is a jaw-dropper!
