  1. Just beautiful, I am always amazed and inspired by both your gardens and your photos. You truly are a master. My name is Fawne and I have been silently following your blog for quite a while. I thought it is time to introduce myself.

  4. Phillip,

    Love Lady Banks, you seem to have mastered it. Going to the Pie Social at the Seeds Garden on Sunday they have a huge Lady Banks!

  5. Now this looks exciting. Can't wait to have something as scrumptious as this going on in my garden. It is good that you have a reflection of all the beautiful blooms going too.

  6. Absolutely beautiful - two of my favorites-though I have neither one in my garden :(

  7. I just obtained my first spiraea, a bridal wreath that I rescued a sprig from one of the old home sites nearby and potted up until it recovers.
    Oh the Nun's orchid, I put into a wider container. They have a lot of roots. I see why the references say to allow a lot of room. Mary

  13. OMG! My heart skipped a beat. How gorgeous. Some people say once-blooming roses are not worth the space, but there is nothing that blooms with such abandon and profusion as a once-blooming rose!

  15. Your garden is so lovely. It's amazing how blooms can perk up a garden & just invite you into it.
