Sharing our garden

I cannot begin to describe how much it means to me that K enjoys the gardens I’m creating for us. I love “seeing” it through her eyes as we walk around the beds and borders enjoying the blooms and dreaming about the future. Yesterday, she surprised me with a series of photos she’d taken — a chance to really see it as she does.

Growing native Lobelia

I’m growing native Lobelia (both the red L. cardinalis and blue L. silphitica) for the first time. I’ll admit that my aesthetic sense sometimes rails against the weedy appearance of the stems and foliage of many native prairie plants. The flowers, on the other hand, are right in my visual wheelhouse.
