Oh My God, that plant in the first picture is so spectacular! It looks really outstanding and standing out in that corner!
Thank you Andrea. its a smokebush a beautiful burgundy color but the sunlight on the dew that morning made it glow. i had to grab my camera fast
Thank you Arun. I love these plants they will grow taller and be covered with bees soon. They are hardy in my zone 5A garden .. so cool
I love the labrador. No garden is complete without one.
Thanks Jeannie.. if only the rabbits and deer were afraid of her!
That first picture is pretty rad. Smoke bush, both bronze and gold, are trendy here, but never look so good. Actually, almost al look rather grungy. So-called ‘gardeners’ do not prune them enough to stimulate vigorous new growth. I have not seen a formerly common ‘green’ sort in a long time.
Thanks Tony… the smokebush is a gorgeous burgundy color but the morning light and dew on it made it look like silver. I prune it back by half every year.. usually in the fall after the leaves all drop
