More Small Beauties

These gorgeous tulips (tulipa humilis 'Odalisque') fried out in last week's heat before I could even get a beauty shot.  They weren't open in the morning when I left for work, but were crisp when I got home.  And it's supposed to be 26 degrees tonight.  Weather whiplash.

These scilla siberica 'Spring Beauty' look as great with the chartreuse dwarf acorus as I hoped they would.  Sometimes I get it right.

 This arabis blehparophylla (from Home Depot!) loves being in the trough.  It's compatriot died a quick death in the ground last year.  Drainage, drainage, drainage.

 Arabis alp. caucasica 'Snowball'

leucojeum aestivum 'Gravetye Giant'

These varmints were tearing it up in the garden yesterday.


  1. Hey!! Watch what you call my children, young man! :0 )
    Actually, if I were to categorize them by name in the garden, I would think the following, respectively....Grace would be a "Wild Rose" , while Liam would be a perky....."Trillium"...!!!
    Hey, it's better than some other children who I know and would name them possibly Deadly Nightshade or Frogs Breath.....ugh.....

  2. I love your little trough gardens! Such good design in a small space. And, I am sure the children are , er, charming!

  3. Those kids are the reason I still have lawn. Oh well. Someday I won't have to mow.
