Remembering summer 2006 (Part 1)

I rediscovered a bunch of images I’d taken and prepared for blogging last September, but never had time to put them online. The scenes came as quite a shock, now that I’ve gotten used to the snowy landscape. Will try to get the rest of the images — mostly vignettes of favorite plants and combos — over the next few weeks as we countdown to spring.

The container cluster, which is now the container stack in the winter images. Brugmansia, cannas, elephant ears, dahlias.

ContainersExpanded water garden, which finally froze over about 3 weeks ago. Hope the fishies are doing OK.

Blue-bottle and auger ‘flower’ with Scotch thistle

Vignette with blue-bottle and ship-building auger ‘flower’ and Scotch thistle (Onopordum acanthium), the greyish plants in the foreground. The Scotch thistle is only supposed to be hardy to Zone 6, but three plants I grew from seed a few years ago have seeded themselve around pretty well. But that’s OK, I love them.
