Summer nakedness!

Thursday, 04 Aug 11 Cloudy 21°C / 70°F

Now that all the spring show is done, the garden is naked… I have been so busy reno-ing the house, and landscaping I haven’t planned out my beds bloom times. It really shows, or in this case NOT.

    its especially important for pollinators to have lots of summer blooming plants. You have plenty of options. Right now the bees are going beserk in my Seattle garden on crocosmia, “Rozanne” geranium, mallow, Eryngium, Nepeta, fireweed, daisies, spirea, penstemon, poppies, ornamental oregano…

    I have that problem in the winter. My back yard hill looks great in the spring, summer and fall. In the winter it’s dead as can be. I can’t figure out how to keep it looking good in the winter. Not great, just good.
