Just gorgeous Karen! WOW! Thank you for sharing it with us. I've seen some of your garden but holy cow, not all of it. Stunning!

What is the tall pink flowered plant on the left of your back deck steps with coleus on either side??

Nice to see and enjoy your garden. The coleus combinations are outstanding...I especially like the blue flowered plant (aster?) with the butterflys around it...Your front of porch planting are a treat for the eyes also...A wonderful tour.

Thank you for all the nice comments on our humble yard, Ladies.

Vic, the pink flowered shrub by the deck is a dwarf Crepe Myrtle "Pink Velour". My husband bought it for me for my birthday a couple of years ago. The label says it only hardy to zone 7, but it has over wintered 2 years in that protected corner of our zone 6 yard.

Veronica, the butterfly-covered plant is Aster Bluebird.

Coleus seems to be the magic plant for our front yard. That area doesn't get enough direct sun for sun lovers like zinnias, but gets too much hot sun for full-shade plants. Sun Coleus just seem to thrive there.

Great tour, Sharon and Karen!

Karen, your coleus and entry is just beautiful, and the back beds, Hydrangeas and coneflowers a treat!

Bet your neighbors look forward to your gardens every year! I know I would! Thumbs up
