Yay, it’s back!! Its funny how we perceive some plants as girly, and others not. Mrs Buster’s garden looks wonderful, I like grasses and perennials together, they give an ethereal feel. Look forward to seeing the bog garden too. If you have a look at my post on Monday this week, there is masses of inspiration for a water garden, 7 acres of it!
I like grasses and perennials together too – I have all-ready earmarked some of Mrs. Busters grasses – I will have to pursade her they need dividing in the Autumn 🙂
I had allready seen your post about the watergardens – it was very inspiring.
Love it Karen! Chey is responsible for me looking into daylilies – of course they have to be small, repeating and fragrant! I like them since their leaves look like an ornamental grass too – not just because of their flowers, they are just the icing on the cake! Sorry we do not live closer – You could have gotten an Iris Siberica from me for your bog garden – I have a blue and a purple – no clue about the name of them.
Oh Niels – thank for the nice thought about the iris – very sweet. Glad you liked the post. I agree with you that fragrant daylilies would be a lovely addition to the garden.
You have both worked so hard this week. It will be worth it in the winter when you are sitting in your studio and have something nice to look at. Perhaps it will inspire you. Mrs Busters garden is truly devine. I would love my garden to look like that. Great job on the comic strip.
Hi Dobby – Glad you liked the comic. Yes we did have a hard week – but I will post about it soon.
Brilliant post Karen. So another part of your garden’s coming into shape. More for me to see the next time!
Yes VP there will be more for you too see on your next visit – although no plants – yet –
but I think we have now created a hot dry bit so I will have somewhere to plant Petrovskia.
I am so glad you reminded me about that plant – I grew it in my last garden and I loved it so much – how can I forget about a plant that I enjoyed so much?
Loved the comic. If you really hate Daylily foliage, you should get the Daylily ‘Penny’s Worth.’ It’s a dwarf, with cute (but not girly) yellow flowers & grasslike foliage. I’d have posted a photo, but I killed mine leaving it in a planter over the winter. I have damp garden dreams (not to be confused with garden wet dreams), about plants I can’t grow. Aruncus, Chelone, Filipendula, Rodgersia (is it still called that?). A bog garden sounds like a fun venture.
Hi Mr. McGregor’s Daughter, I will check out Daylily “Penny’s Worth” – thanks for the suggestion.
We are only making a little bog garden – but I will post about it soon, I am enjoying making plant lists for it though!
Thanks for visiting
