It’s already a bit late in the season to be getting to the garden centre but there was still plenty of beauty! I always put some annuals out front, usually some dark red geraniums and some purple wave petunias, neither of which were available so I made some new choices. What’s funny is that I didn’t even notice that I had picked the same colour scheme! I guess I just like it, especially against the green of our house.
Verbena Hybrid – Lanai Dark Red Verbena (annual)
Salvia longispicata x farinacea – Mystic Spires, Blue Salvia (perennial)
Euphorbia Hybrid – ‘Star Dust Super Flash” Euphorbia (annual)
Delphinium elatum – “Guardian Lavender” Delphinium (perennial)
Pieris japonica – ‘Brouwer’s Beauty’ Japanese Pieris (shrub)
These give me a sense of serenity and sanctuary just looking at them. Tomorrow I’ll get them in the ground and let them start the process of making our garden home.
