Eddi Reid sent these photos in just the other day, fresh from her garden in Columbus. She said, "Today is very beautiful and a little cooler with a slight breeze, so I headed out for a walk around the garden and took a few shots for you." And we thank you, Eddi! That is a LOT of amaryllis! I can only imagine what they all look like when in bloom together in winter. Dreamy! But that Japanese maple is dreamiest of all, for sure.
Send in photos, everyone! Michelle@gardenygoodness.com.
Looking up through the foliage of this Japanese maple I am always amazed at the colors, especially toward late afternoon.
There are always forgotten corners in my garden. This one allows a peek under the maple where you can see part of a large broken terra cotta pot and a fallen bird feeder. I have several half pots semi buried in the earth to provide homes for toads - this seems to work as one ran right across my foot not long ago!
Containers of amaryllis outside for summer. One of them has decided to flower. The geraniums have grown from broken or trimmed plants indoors which I popped into the soil. Further back is a bed of zebra grass with wild asters and Queen Anne's lace, which I let grow simply because I like them.
There were several plants in this old sink but the sedum ate them!
Tiger lily that appeared from nowhere.
Through the fence I spotted this gorgeous hosta, but I have no name for it. I need to keep records.
A pool planter with weigela, cranesbill geranium, and an unnamed pelargonium. The artwork is made from metal.
Senna, unknown variety
