I am excited to show you two pictures of one of my favorite perennials.
|Firecracker Penstemon (Penstemon eatonii)|
Do you have friends with whom you share a common interest?
My friend and fellow blogger, Amy Andrychowicz of Get Busy Gardening loves gardening as much as I do. Amy and I have spent time together in Arizona and later in Florida.
Enjoying the shade from the ground cover was a frog.
You may be surprised to find that growing vegetables is largely the same no matter where you live. The main difference is the gardening calendar. For example, I plant Swiss chard in October and enjoy eating it through March. In Amy’s garden, Swiss chard isn’t planted until late spring.
Different varieties of thyme were planted amount the pavers for a lovely effect.
Thyme can make a great ground cover in areas that receive little foot traffic.
I don’t often see red columbine. Amy’s reseeds readily, so she always has columbine coming up.
