My garden has exploded after that week of heat we just had. Here are some photos of the Sunset Garden right now, with yellow and red yarrow, red campion, and red snapdragons in bloom. That’s a Coppertina ninebark shrub with the leaf colour that matches the brick of the house. The white and blue flowers way in the background are persicaria and delphiniums. Click on the photos to zoom in on each.
Taking a step back, here’s a front view of the whole garden. Next year I think I’ll put some taller annuals in front of those grasses to fill those bare spots, at least until the shrubs get bigger (there are some potentillas there but they’re not very big yet).
