The Garden - 2011

I either planted or moved everything in the front and back flower gardens this year.  All Zone 3 perennials with a  smattering of annuals.  The gardens all had that 'first year perennial' look to it.  Like they were all angry that I took them from their friends at the nursery. "I'll show her.  I'm going to just sit her alllll summer and wilt and under perform" I now understand the value of showy annuals.  Here's a sampling of this year's 'harvest' (all zone 3)


The Front Garden: 
The purple section: (Clockwise from left): black petunias, delphinium, Japanese anemone,  bergenia, ?? 


cute little sea holly


The rock garden: Clockwise from bottom left - pink sedum, lambs ear,  yucca, edelweiss (purchased only because I love the song), chicken and egg


Evergreen on right with a sweet hair do


Clockwise from left: Petunias, harebell, echinacea, that same ?? 


Yellow garden in foreground: helenium




Trial veggie garden: 'cumpins' (2 year old's term), and potatoes (the beans, carrots, peas and garlic didn't grow - curses)


Rain barrel for veggie garden
Backyard gardens


Patio pot


Sedum and oat grass by patio


Side garden: Karl forester, blue fescue

Already miss summer? Me too...
