I've got four Hydrangeas planted in this bed beneath the family room window. I think this is the nicest this bed has ever looked and it's been through many, many iterations. Coleus and Chicks & Hens complement the nice, big green leaves of the Hydrangeas. These are the bushes that were getting too large last year so I pruned them and they are just now starting to produce some flowerheads.
And on the edge of the patio nearest the lawn, I've got pots of Basil, Cilantro, Sage and Chives. There's also a Meyer Lemon tree (dwarf) in a pot there too. This is the second of two lemon trees we have and they have just started to flower for this season. The sage has really taken off this year....it's leaves are large and luscious!
Just spent a bit of time this morning, after our walk, deadheading some of the Agapanthus out front. They are doing so well this year, it looks like a sea of purple/lavender!
I think my garden/plants are doing so well because we've been having foggy mornings and cooler days. Once we start having our normal hot temperatures, things will change, I'm sure. For now, I'm really enjoying it all. So are my quilting friends as I keep supplying them with fresh herbs every two weeks!!
Happy Sunday! I'm off to do some ironing.
