Gardening in the Pacific Northwest (Vancouver, Washington)
This is such a busy time of year in the garden that I have to force myself to stop and take photos. I took these one evening last week right before dusk. I love how the chartreuse foliage pops in the fading light.
The Kousa dogwood "Wolf's Eyes" has just leafed out and seems to glow in the dark. It is one of my favorite small trees.
Deutzia with hostas, underneath Sweet Olive (Osmanthus fortunei)
Salvia "May Night" growing under "Buff Beauty" rose. I severely pruned "Buff Beauty" two years ago - I did not want to do it but there were so many dead branches underneath. It seems to be coming back nicely but I would not advise pruning it like this unless you just have to.
Spirea "Gold Mound" - a truly wonderful, carefree shrub.
