This is my favorite section of the yard. It is right in front of the house, and I love driving up and seeing it.
My new sprinkler from my awesome neighbors, the Martins, hard at work making those flowers bloom!
These are Fire Pokers. I really like this flower. It will re-bloom near the fall.
A fine young man who shouted "take my picture!"
Annual Geraniums from the Connellsville Geranium festival
This is Coreopsis Lanceolata. It was a plant I picked up from a local garden club plant sale and it was a quarter of this size just last year. It is very, very tall, but very pretty!! Best $2 ever spent.
Creeping Thyme. It is almost finished blooming. I also have purple (lots of purple in the yard....)
My new little hostas. I have a very shady yard, so I end up buying a few hostas each year to fill in some holes.
I love this tree. It will bloom a large part of the summer - I wish I had more than one!
Hens and chicks. I really like succulents and need more!
A corner of the yard that is.....busy. Autumn Suns, Smoke Bush, Iris.....
These are finished blooming but these are Jack in the Pulpit. We have tons and tons of them here in Massachusetts, and I love scavenging the woods for more each year. The love shade and will grow in the weirdest places, so they are perfect under our pine trees - where nothing else will grow.
This is my biggest Jack in the Pulpit - look at the size of this puppy!
Flower on our climbing vine.
Lambs ear. So fluffy and soft. AND - gets a purple flower.
Our first summer, we uncovered this huge hillside with a beautiful rock wall that had been completely overgrown. Just beautiful find. So the past several summers I have been planting these hosta with the white outline - my favorite kind. And they don't get too big. Of course - the hillside is shaded, so this worked perfect. Here are just a few there.....the deer have pummled them this year and I hadn't had a chance to spray to keep them away. SAD!
I was doing so well - but I have NO idea what this plant is - I have totally forgotten! Moving on.
Mat's garden. We built the encloure last summer, and this year Mat planted some veggies.
Garden is looking good! We might actually get some food from it.
By our detached garage we have two unbelievable in size hosta. I mean, just giant. I have no idea what is in the soil up here, but it grows monster plants.
A perfect rose for the end of the tour.
