My hanging baskets are finally beginning to fill out. In another week they should be looking pretty decent (even if they all do have pink petunias instead of purple). The mallow has started blooming. I removed tons of this last fall because it was becoming quite the pest--reseeding all over the place. It's shorter than usual. I have noticed that most of my plants are on the short side this year.
Here's my driftwood with lychnis coronaria and Sweet William blooming in front of it.
I am still amazed when I look through the woodland arbor and see how nice it looks. This is not even part of the garden. Just the woods where I toss stuff out. Right now it's full of feverfew, lychnis and Sweet William.
At the moment I have quite the pastel palette going on.
Except for this:
As you can see some of the orange lilies have crept in.
Lostroses, does this color scheme look familiar? LOL
In just a few days, the colors will change to mostly orange and red.
