South China, ME(Zone 5a)

Jen I had to come tell you this....I had almost sent this to you...it was on it's last year here. This is year 3 and I said if it didn't open all the way it was going to Jen's in Jersey! It is a stunning 2 toned pink but would never fully open. Finally this year it opened all the way...'Strawberry Yum'

That is beautiful, glad you waited. Until I looked at my photos I didn't realize I am drawn to the apricot peachy pink tones.

Nice downy shots, Mittsy, and the liberated gazania seedling is very pretty! Love it when you can do that! Starting seeds.....especially liberated ones.....always feel
Ike a miracle to me! Exciting after all these years still. Nice job!

South Hamilton, MA

DL 'Pumpkin Time' is still blooming. It can last through Sept some years. Saw our first golden rod (solidago) this morning. It does NOT have a wind distributed pollen. Blame the rag weed.

central, NJ(Zone 6b)

Neat looking Gazania

Thomaston, CT

That is a pretty gazania.....I believe the yellow DL is Blueberry Sundae....yes, I've seen goldenrod blooming also....

Beautiful pix.The patio shot is so nice and inviting.The kairne is right at home too.

Fleming Island, FL(Zone 9a)

I've been up in MA/NH visiting DD/DS for the past week. Although I've not enjoyed the cool & damp weather, I have been loving the plants. I've only been in FL for 18 months & do miss my northern plants.
So nice to see the purple coneflowers & all the Hosta. And the beautiful Begonias. Too humid in FL for them to do well.

I would like to bring to your attention that the Lowell Quilt Festival is next weekend, 8-10 August. www.lowellquiltfestival.org

I'm heading back to FL today & looking forward to seeing what all is blooming there.

May all your weeds shrivel & die. .............Happy Gardening.

Lexington, MA(Zone 6a)

Speaking of Lowell, I believe their big folk festival is this weekend.

Lexington, MA(Zone 6a)

I've been meaning to ask Pam, what are those very green mounded plants at the top of the garden, and some are bordering at the bottom. Looks like evergreen, maybe a boxwood, or a Japanese holly maybe? They really complete the look.

(Pam) Warren, CT(Zone 5b)

Yes, they are boxwoods. They must be dwarfs, as they were unprinted for several years after the previous owner retired to Florida and before DH bought the house. The ones at the top were pruned in M's and W's, but some of the pattern was lost when they became overgrown.

I never noticed! The man ran a nursery, correct?

(Pam) Warren, CT(Zone 5b)

Yes, John Savage, Unusual Perennials and Alpines. He was here from the early 30's until 1970. DH came in 1978.

Lexington, MA(Zone 6a)

Thanks. I like the shape in which they're planted very much. It seems to mimic natural.
