Garden fluff.

.

Even with the drought we’re experiencing, the Rhodies were magnificent this year.

.

.

And the Barn Mahal porch has color coordinated pots of pretties as well. I find orange and yellow really pop against the red.

.

.

This little petunia almost looks painted.

.

.

Whether it will survive the woodchuck onslaughter is another matter entirely.

.

.

Do you have a bed where all the leftovers end up?

.

.

This is mine. A mini bed by the bulkhead doors where my first ever gay feather is getting ready to bloom…. and the neighboring hostas have launched an invasion.

.

.

Love this combination Lantana.

.

.

When the woodchucks decimated my gardens 2 years ago I searched for flowers they hated and planted them. Foxglove? Check!

.

.

Astilbe? Healthy and woodchuck nibble free.

Did you know astilbe is also called False Goat’s Beard? What’s up with that… are there goats who need to travel incognito?

.

.

Apparently, yes. Yes there are.

  1. Those Rhodies are so beautiful and remind me of my childhood. We had large bushes of both light and dark purple ones. Glad your chucks are leaving well enough alone the the garden once you tailored their “menu” to be not to their liking.

    1. It’s funny what they will and will not eat. Petunias? They pull off all the blooms. Mallow? Chew them down to the ground. Geraniums? Won’t touch them.
