  1. Dear Greggo, Your garden is amazing. I love the salvia and Penstemon combination. Pamela

  2. It's looking great your way! I am looking forward to getting to that point. I am also looking forward to some warmer temps.

    We had quite the storm last night. I'm glad we trusted our instincts and did not put in a retaining wall. The slope held up fine.

  3. I love the flower carpet rose ! Salvia is such a great plant. I have several varieties; they are real work horses!

    Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my foliage and textures post. Yes, I did plant the mondo grass in mass. I transplanted it from another part of our property, so I had a free source. I spaced small clumps up to a foot apart, and it took a couple of years to fill in.

  4. Wow! Your garden is SO much farther along than mine in Illinois! I've never seen a Foxglove so full of blooms!


Thanks for leaving any comments, they are always welcomed. Sorry I had to add word verification as spam was becoming a huge problem. Greggo,
