Seeking cool plants that work.
Colour coordinated too!
A happy accident, I assure you. lol
So much color!
It's nice that I can use my blog to make my garden look more full of flowers than it is. ;)
Beatuiful. Nice that the fragrance of the first two images can't be detected over the internet!
Yes, this is one plant that puts any arguments for transmitting smells electronically into question. I really need to move it away from the house. Phew!
When I look at your blog and can only identify 2 out of 5 plants I can really tell there are huge climate differences between your area and my New England gardens.Either that or you have cooler local garden centers then I do (in which case I am SERIOUSLY jealous).
I spent a summer in Massachusetts at Garden in the Woods, and there is definitely a huge climate difference. The Pacific Northwest is also blessed with some of the coolest garden centers in the country, not to rub it in. And then there's the matter of every gardener having different tastes and styles. Thanks for commenting!
Wonderful reds! I can't identify the 1st flower - is it some kind of corpse flower (arum)? I so wish I could grow Astrantia.
The first one is Dracunculus vulgaris, a real big stinker of an arum. I had to fend off the swarm of flies attracted by its carrion scent to take those pictures. Definitely something to admire from afar. I'm lucky to even get that one stem of Astrantia flowers. The slugs almost devoured it before I remembered to spread slugbait around it. See, even in the PNW it has trouble!
No words necessary.
This was hard. I'm so full of words, and other things.
Lovely macros, Evan. And of course the flower colors are gorgeous.
Thank you, Grace!
