Top Ten Day

A Top Ten day, cool, breezy dry... after all the oppressive heat this was gorgeous.  High in the 70s, hot in the sun, cool in the shade.  Sunny all day.

I planted European ginger in the Northern Exposure garden to create some foliage texture.  Added 6 more epimedium Frohnleiten under the dogwood.  Added a different kind of Myosotis (forget Me Not) under the new redbud, so it's a mix of a darker and lighter blue now.

Planted an annual Nicotiana in the back of the birch garden.  Added three artemesia Silver Mounds in the front of that garden.

And I added more of the geranium wlassovianum in the new garden along the west walk.

Bought two gauras Siskiyou Pink, but I planted them in big pots instead of in the ground.  Hopefully I can get them winter over inside.

The allium moly is a real surprise:

The Oenothera is blooming, so pretty:

And the knock out roses!
