. . . around the gardens tonight. Something I don't think I've taken time to do in forever. The light was perfect and some of my very favourite things are coming along ~ better late than never?
Grasses ~ I go gaga over Wheat and Setaria every year.
This Agastache 'Indigo', survived I'm sure as a result of all of that fantastic
s-n-o-w cover last winter. It's a zone 5 and a stunning, dark tone unlike any of the others I have grown
The bees adore Agastache.
I have discovered a seed company that offers an incredible selection of grasses. I can hardly wait to tuck these into a market bouquet.
And this precious little gem . . . ADENOPHORA triphylla.
A charming Ladybell bearing flared open blue bells in whorls around the stem.
She is much more beautiful in person. I started these from seed last spring and am not disappointed by their petite nodding heads in just the perfect shade of purple blue. A limited number of 2nd year perennial plants will be for sale at the market in September ~ a perfect planting time.
Here's to evening strolls around the garden. Rain or shine, enjoy a really lovely weekend.
