Every now and then I like to look at a black and white photo of my garden to see where I need more contrast. As I look up toward the main arbor, I think the contrast here is pretty good.
Here is the same picture in color:
As I go just a few feet further down the path, I notice the top left side needs contrast--it all looks the same color in black/white. I have never been happy with this area. It does not get much sun and it's all rock so I can't dig down very deep. So far I have been content to let any plant that survives the winter to remain here.
This path is the new one we put in a few weeks ago. I am so happy with the Cardinal flower (the red one). It has been blooming for nearly two months. What a great perennial. I hope it survives the winter. Please ignore the hose. I was lugging it around in the ealry morning hours to get the new path plantings watered.
Here I stepped back to get the coleus in the shot.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
