Season 3: Things are coming along

You can see 'The Fairy' rose starting to take off just behind the Lamb's Ear, some of my new plantings this season in my newly expanded bed. The Salvia Caradonna next to it is also new.

Marie Daley rose is taking hold, along with a new Artemesia.

My Knockout roses are doing their thing - I've completely ignored them and intend to keep on keeping on. I planted a few Canna Wyoming (dark foliage and orange blooms), we'll see how they do in this spot. The Salvia May Night are sure happy!

The lone Leyland Cypress lurks in the back. My Hardy Ferns look good, and my Planterfall is rocking it.

My Black Gamecock are fabulous. The Phlox next to it is chugging along. Behind it, 2 new experiments: Philippine Violet and Salvia involucrata ‘Bethellii’.

Mme. Berkeley is healthy and growing!
