I was reading some snarky garden article the other day about the overuse of salvia by landscape designers and I looked out into my yard in horror . . . you guys, I have SO much salvia. In my defense, I was sent 21 of them by High Country Gardens in the weirdest order mix-up ever
, but I've still got a lot that are my doing.
|Salvia sylvestris 'Blue Hill'|
I love them and the bees love them. And they smell so good and sweaty. 'Caradonna' and 'May Night' are still going and will go on all summer.
|Salvia 'Indigo Spires' is just getting going|
But the most exciting thing right now is that my Yucca recurvifolia bloomed! Hot damn.
|Lilium martagon 'Arabian Night'|
|Helenium 'Mardi Gras'|
|Eremurus 'Lemon Meringue' are just finishing up|
|Fuschia magellanica 'Hawkshead'|
|Scabiosa caucasica 'Fama Blue'|
|Penstemon x 'Enor'|
|Agastache aurantica 'Navajo Sunset'|
|Callicarpa bodinieri 'Profusion'|
|Papaver 'Drama Queen'|
|Papaver hybridium 'Lauren's Grape'|
|Clarkia amoena 'Aurora'|
This summer has really snuck up on me . . . I feel like I'll be putting the garden to bed for winter if I don't stop and enjoy things. Happy bloom day and thank you to our host Carol
