Yesterday I looked at this pot of foliage and noticed the dark reddish-brown stripe of color in the canna leaves. It's a perfect match to the top leaf of the coleus and also the stem of the dahlia.
That made me very happy. (it sure doesn't take much, does it? LOL)
I have already forgotten what color the flowers will be if it blooms. Even if it does not, I like the combination of just foliage.
I will be leaving for Detroit this afternoon. It is my yearly meeting there. I usually hate to go, but today I am looking forward to leaving work about 1 pm and heading down. It's close to a 5-hr drive and the boss is driving, not me.
If we can sneak out early on Tuesday afternoon (as we have been known to do) maybe I can get him to stop at a nursery. I have not been able to find purple fountain grass this year and I would really like some.
I won't be back on line until Wednesday.
I am sure DH will do a good job of taking care of my babies while I am gone. Hopefully we get a lot of rain.
You all be good and post a lot so I have tons to read when I get home!
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.
