My bicolor butterflly bush...

June 16,2007






The above cannas are fabulous! I don't remember buying this, but it's cool anyway...the pond and Belinda's Dream rose...my yard is becoming a private oasis, ahhh. The path on the west side of the house is filling in nicely. The plants? Rose of Sharon trees, hardy hibiscus, hyacinth bean vine on trellis'. Looking good!

My brothers' Gnome Garden








I did my brother's landscaping today...he has a new house and it needed flowers in the beds (look at 1st pic of before, blech)...I asked him to be thinking of some sort of theme...yellow flowers? Purple? Instead he called me and was all excited saying he found his garden theme and it was to be GNOMES! Ok...tacky, but he was all happy about it...I'm posting pics of before/after/gnomes. I planted 2 flats of light colored caladiums, 3 alstromeria's, 9hostas(bulbs),3 astillbe's(bulbs),12orange cannas(bulbs) and 2 elephant ear(bulbs). I hope all the bulbs make it!! He planted his gnomes...How's the after?
