I was visiting with my co-worker Johnny about my love of gardening one day when he suggested, "You need to come over and talk to my wife, Kit - she loves to garden too."
So last weekend I took him up on his offer and went over to their home to admire their garden. We had the best time! We talked gardening, and dirt, and mulch and seeds and everything garden - we were all in heaven! They have transformed their twin home landscape into a caleidoscope of colorful perennials and annuals.
Scabiosa or pincushion flower. I'm trying this next year.
Loved the combination of profusion zinnias (which looked WAY different than mine), tickseed and balloon flower. Here's another photo below of the profusion zinnias.
I thought profusions were always small?! They did such a nice job with the rock edging too.
This dainty white flower delphinium "Summer Morning" was front and center in the back bed. (I thought it was nicotiana at first glance).
This perennial lobelia was next to the delphinium as well. I had tried this plant before but the bunnies got it ... (sigh).
This was the oddest looking plant - a "cleome" or spider flower - which Johnny said looked like giant jellyfish. It was huge but a very cool accent in the garden.
Here's a glance at how everything works together....
I hope you enjoyed a look at Johnny and Kit's garden. It was a Sunday afternoon well spent.
Happy Birthday Sasha!
