Aren’t these a heavenly blue? Woodland phlox. Another treasure brought home from the garden center gig. And they smell so sweet, too. Now to find a friendly shady spot for them. Wish they could stay on the table but they’d never survive the sun. I’m thinking perhaps of a spot near the driveway entrance, so that they can greet me everytime I arrive home.
Yesterday was my first opportunity since the change of seasons that I had a stretch of several hours to spend in the yard working on that “outdoor living space” garden dream mentioned in my 2007 resolutions/intentions. It was absolutely delightful. Utterly restorative. And all of the digging, bending and lifting made for a fabulous night’s sleep, as well!
Are you familiar with lantana? I absolutely love it. This variety has a trailing habit – great for pots. And its scent is like lemon verbena! yum!
These are the new additions, as of Sunday. I call it my garden stash. Not unlike my fabric stash, button stash, bead stash and yarn stash. Common theme? Color. Color, color, color!
