inside the fence

can i mix baseball metaphors here inside the garden ?   i keep telling myself that this one could be an inside the fence home run.  and someday it might pull it off.  it has good color combination.  a nice paint like splash of color.  and it is tall enough.  four images…

intriguing

not perfect.  not ideal.  not without a few rough spots.  still intriguing.  and it just might be me crowding things planting way too close to the neighboring plants.  Sally Sue.  three images…

gardens

some gardens are formal.   some are not.  some are wilder.  random spaces filled with short and tall.  random spaces filled with surprises.  hidden things requiring divided attention and discovery.  five images…

indecisive

found in the garden

what is in the garden ?  well if you are doing it right – you are.  it does not have to be your garden.  it just has to be you in a garden.  any garden.  that includes untended and wild gardens.  sometimes you just have to be there.  see it and feel it.  find it.   tonight this is what is to be found in the digital garden.  a seedling  –   Prague Spring x Gift Tie) x Sally Sue.  two images..

a walk in the seedling bed

it rained this morning.  somehow that knocked out the garden walk.  it did not rain this afternoon.  so it was time to see what was blooming and time to see what might be happening in the seedling bed.  good things.  this is a first flower.  time will tell how it matures.  so it may change and shift.  and i just might have to adjust my expectations.  and so far i like what is being shown.
