Spanish Lavender

Spanish Lavender

I gardened for 3 hours this morning. Got some things done from my yesterday list: Numbers 1, 4, 5, 7, 8, 9, 10, 13. Pretty good, huh? I also planted Irish Moss and Scotch Moss around my Good and Evil statue and planted a 6-pack of Salvia 'Victoria Blue.'

Later this afternoon I want to plant 2 tomato plants: Big Boy and Better Boy. I plant them in half barrels. I only have 4 plants total. Those 2 and Sweet 100 and Grape Tomato.

The many faces of rose 'Mutabilis' The blooms change colors as they age. One of my very favorites. This is in my backyard, near pond.

Polyantha Rose 'Leonie Lamesch' planted last year in Roadside Garden. I adore polyanthas.

Clematis 'Belle of Woking'.

I can't remember name of this clematis. It's planted on arch leading to pond with rose 'Cl. White Maman Cochet'. I promise to go back through garden notebook and identify.

Rose 'Cl. Souvenir de la Malmaison' on left side of pond arch.

China rose 'Slater's Crimson China' planted beside 'Mutabilis'.

Wisteria on pergola over deck.

White Siberian Iris.
