"Ready for a garden tour?"
A couple changes out front this week, before we show you what's blooming! The first change is right here on the front porch - Mom planted a bunch of stuff in the big pot on the left:
|On the left: Fishnet Stockings Coleus, white Impatiens, and English Ivy|
On the right: Sweet Potato Vine, a different Coleus, and Blue Rush
In one of the other big, blue pots out front, Mom planted Silver Mound, some Wild Blue Oat Grass, and Celosia Intenz. Check out the Celosia -- it looks like hot pink caterpillars!!!
It's a great splash of color!
In the Butterfly Garden, the Pincushion Flower is still blooming:
And Mom's experiment at cutting back the Salvia seems to have worked some magic -- it has exploded in blooms!
Out back, the Bee Garden is a sea of purple:
|Liriopes blooming amidst the Russian Sage!|
Look at who's in the Friendship Garden!
|Tiny butterfly on the Beth Coneflowers|
The Becky Daisies are winding down for the season, but the deadheads are still a great landing pad for butterflies!

Everything is still blooming like crazy in the Wildflower Garden. Here is a bee enjoying one of our Cheyenne Spirit Coneflowers:

The PowWow Wild Berry Coneflowers are such a bright spot back there!

And the new Daydream Coneflowers are starting to take hold:
Last, but not least, the white Rose of Sharon Bushes down by the fence are still covered in blooms! Mom cut them way back last Fall, and they loved it! They're bigger than ever this year!

We hope you enjoyed our garden tour!
(and Mags, too!)
