Nadia’s Garden 2016
My daughter enjoys gardening as much as I do, my sister and my mom.
Her 8-year-old daughter also shows interest in nature and plants…a future gardener in training…:-)
I am so proud of them!
This year she changed her landscaping, by adding a stone landscaping wall, replacing all her shrubs, and rearranging her perennials.
Right now everything is quite small and new, but next year it will be a real showcase.
Today I will share some pictures I took of her landscaping and plants.
East side view of the new landscaping.
I love the blue color of the flowers of this Delphinium plant.
Foxglove is another gorgeous plant, with a very tall stalk filled with these lovely bell-like flowers.
Here we have light purple color of the flowers on Scabiosa or Pincushion and Lavender plants.
Here we have yellow Day Lilly, peach color Snapdragon plant, Snow Hill Salvia, and light pink Dianthus. Also, Wild Berry Echinacea (Coneflower), and hot pink Bee Balm plant, getting ready to bloom.
These low spreading plants are Mellow Yellow Yarrow, and hot pink succulent Iceplant.
Beautifully blooming Gailliardia (Blanket flowers), and snow white Peony is beginning to open up as well. Behind the Peony, you can see Cosmos plant, which will bloom later on this summer, until frost.
Here we have Fruit Punch Dianthus, and Sea-Pink flowers of Dussendorf Pride .
These delicate looking Petunias are actually very tough. They seeded themselves from last year plants, survived our unpredictable spring weather, and still very tiny, but showcasing full size gorgeous flowers.
Ever so vibrant cream-yellow Day Lilies , Star Gazer Lilies which will bloom in July, and Fire Red Bee Balm is getting ready to bloom.
Reviewing all these pictures, you will agree that my daughter did a super job with her brand new landscaping. I can’t wait to see it all in full bloom throughout the summer and fall.
Her vegetable garden is filling up nicely as well. She cultivates several types of herbs, tomatoes, cucumbers, corn, dill, parsley, rutabaga, rosemary, lettuce, broccoli, and even a brand new Pear tree.
