wild honey suckle everywhere smells wonderful all summer long
my hollyhocks, beautiful no?
elephant ears, this last one seems to be stunted for some reason
my orange rose didn’t get much die back this past couple of years so is finally getting some height.
my fairy rose
horse I bought at the thrift long time ago, this metal bowl (which has a nice design in it but is covered here) I bought just recently at the thrift and most of the shells I got at the beach except for some of the really large ones which I got at the thrift, makes me think of the wild ponies at the outer banks.
I really like this annual I bought and plan on keeping it in the house
well that is it for now enjoy
take a look at the fence panels, this rose you can tell by the extended canes (just grew this past month) it wants to climb, so rather than have to take all the canes out of the panels, (they would probably break if I did) what kind of apparatus can I use to let them climbe? i was thinking of a metal arch that would go on the sides of the panels and extend way up like a rainbow and over to the other side, but what would I use to give it climbing help? what if I use fishing line? now a arbor that has a side and extended top to the other end would work except it is expensive, any suggestions? I can’t take them out of the panels as they willprobably break off alot of the ends of the canes and I like the fence, is there any ideas of what I can make or buy that would work? thanks.all your gardeners and carpenters and such put your thinking caps on andhelp me help this rose.
any suggestions to make this better? changes, add take away? the plants on the edges are hortutunia, I love these, should I add a fence change the hanging plants moving them? the big bush at the top is a crepe myrtel, the plant in the middle is a golden honeysuckle, the little bushy one is a crepe myrtle, the catci is pear,the little scrubby plant on the left is a rose I transplanted here,
now what adjustments can go here? does anyone know why this rugosa (which looks like a tree rose) on the left there has bare stems? the one in the back is more leafed on it’s canes, the trellis is temporary for the morning glories but right in front of that a topaz jewel is going there, (yellow rugosa) should I lose the fence or change it, shall I move the hanging plants and put something else there like a statue or maybe a water feature? I seen those beautiful lilies at the naturleum and seen those lilies at the garden centere and I am thinking humm might just make a minature pond (maybe using a cereamic pot with no holes in it and fill with muck, water and plants? what say you? should I put plants or some hardscape behind the plants next ot the hallway/garage section? give me some ideas that won’t break the bank or evensometihng I can build ormake myself? is there something I can do with adding tall plants or hard scape to the varigated grass and snow on the mountain plants? maybe put a hanging planter there that is shorter thna the ones I have? what can I do to make the window look bettr or hide parts of it? would a five foot lighthouse on a petastl which will be hidden by the plants work behind the plants in the corner of the garage/hallway work? thanks in advance

my new dawn looks really good despite getting the crap beat out of it by the heavy rains we got. when it is cool out they are more pink when it gets really hot they go white.
look almost like old garden roses that the flowers hang over, it was the stupid rain that beat them into submission.
my blaze starting to bloom, yippy, looks like the rain didnt beat them up.
my pink buttons rose (actually fairy rose) hasnt bloomed yet tho it has tons of buds on them.
hope you enjoy these like I am enjoying them,
