Garden 337

A cottage garden in an urban setting

Thinking Blue

I realize that using too much of one color can be    problematic in a garden, but I love garden blues.  And I’m hoping that I’ve mixed things up a bit so that the garden has some balance.  But isn’t this stokesia glorious?

I won’t really know whether there is too much blue in the garden until next year when the lavender comes on.

This bee seems to be in rose heaven as he nuzzles the pollen from this wild spice hansa.

About Me

I haven’t always been a gardener, but I have always loved gardens. It has taken 16 years to get my gardens into the shape they are today. And, I’ve had help. I’m 74 years old, have rheumatoid arthritis, and had a late stage cancer six years ago. I am, though, intrepid. I’m the kind of person who plods along, tailoring my goals as I go. Last November I had a long overdue knee replacement surgery and I’m hoping this spring, summer, and fall will be able to maintain and find even more joy working in all of my garden beds. Full disclosure, though. I have a garden guy who comes once a week to work in my gardens.
