There is not a whole lot happening in my garden right now. A few lilies are starting. By July 4, things should be looking pretty nice. I thought this area of feverfew and rose campion was nice. I especially like the green drumstick allium in the front. They will be a mauve color when they open. Are you all familiar with feverfew? If not, it is the white flower. It reminds many of a large baby's breath. Feverfew is actually an herb (but why quibble over details?). I find it indispensable in providing relief for the eye when colors are mixed. It is very, very easy to grow. Once you plant it, you will have it for life as it readily reseeds. (Often more than you want it to, but it is easy to pull out. I pulled out about a dozen plants last night that had reseeded where I did not want them.
The top pic is a close up of rose campion (lychnis coronaria). I can't seem to get the picture on the bottom.
I am so glad you stopped by to visit my garden. I garden in lower northern Michigan (zone 5) in far less than ideal conditions. I have too many pine trees, too much shade, too many rocks, herds of hosta-munching deer and rabbits who think my lilly buds are gourmet appetizers. I am by no means an expert in horticulture or garden design--just an amateur with a shovel and a passion. My garden changes daily during the summer and I will be updating frequently.
During the winter months, I blog about my favorite cold-weather hobby--quilting and just my everyday musings.
I hope you enjoy your visit, and that you will come back soon.
