It’s a beautiful summer day here in the Washington Metro area. The humidity is low, and the temperature is mild — time for a stroll through the garden! Enjoy the tour….
The caladiums are just spectacular; they may be my favorite new flower!
A favorite spot in the shade on the east side. The crepe myrtles have been flowering for a month and a half already!
The back yard is filling out nicely, and the “green fence” is almost solid now.
This is the path up to the deck. Everything is very full from all the rain we’ve had this month. I think we are on track to set a new rainfall record…
All of the planters up on the deck are spilling out with sun-loving coleus, vinca and sweet potato vine.
I am amazed at how many varieties of coleus there are. I don’t know which one I like best…
This sweet potato vine might take over the deck if I let it!
I think my friend Stomper has the right idea — time for a nap!
