It's just lovely Sue and I love how your gardens look so quiet and secluded as well.

All the blooms are just beautiful Thumbs up

I don't know Sue. I think you must be crazy. I really don't see how in the world your gardens could be more beautiful but if you say you need more groupings of plants to make more of a color impact rather than spots of colored scattered everywhere then I will be more than happy to enjoy what it looks like when that happens!

I'm speechless & in awe.
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

Your new garden is lovely and so well-planned. What kind of edging are you using? Are the yellow flowers with dark centers next to the cannas dahlias? They are just beautiful.

Yes Debra, that's a dahlia, 'Bishop's Children' I believe. I have a couple of others in that same black leafed line but one with red blooms, the other more orange. The yellow is more striking though!

The paths were already in, done by the former owner. They are bender boards.

Very beautiful! You have such a variety of plants and colors. I like the way you've incorporated some vertical plants. Were these pictures taken from a balcony? They are such nice wide shots and I love the way the pictures turned out.
