Muckraking at Longview Ranch
NO! Bite your tongue! ("even if this is the year summer never comes")...I couldn't bear it. No tomatoes?Everything looks fabulous Jane. Simple and bright sounds good to me!
Summer is down here where the temps are triple digits and the flowers are quite different yet it is still zone 8.Everything there looks cool and happy.
What a different and gorgeous garden you get with limited sun and lots of moisture! That pink cistus is to die for, is that a plant that needs a lot of moisture? Here in SE Colorado we have lots of hot sun and little moisture so I try to grow what likes that combination.
THIS is my favorite: CistusI'm a SUCKER for blues!
So glad you grow helianthemums -- I never see those anymore! What gorgeous plants, Jane. That AO agastache is going on the must-have list for sure. The Perle d'Or is sweet. Happy bloom day, Jane.
Sedums are just too difficult, I think. And as I'm having more and more trouble remembering people's names, how can I be expected to remember the sedum's names. And to some I was introduced such a long time ago. Regardless, they're all beautiful. Love the ceanothus, too. Happy bloom day!
Beautiful flowers. The Cistus is a new flower for me. I will have to look it up.
I've never heard of helianthemums, ceanothus, or kniphofia. They all look wonderful.
'Victoria' bit the dust, er, ice, so was replaced by 'Blue Jeans'. I'm hoping a spring planting will give it time to settle in before whatever winter decides to throw at us this year. Must have at least one ceanothus, and once established they are nearly indestructible. My cistus got all gnarly and leggy, but after seeing yours I am tempted to try again. They are the devil to prune, with branches of steel.
Hi Jane, Could be Sedum 'Dragon's Blood.' It seems early for it to be blooming but this year, who knows? ... I'm not a huge Kniphofia fan but I make an exception with yours. I love the soft coloring and the long bloom time.
Glad I bloghopped over, what lovely flowers! Reminded me that my agastache didn't make it throught the winter...Love your blog name!
Thank you in advance for jumping through the annoying but necessary word verification hoop to leave your thoughts!
