Bishop's Delight Garden

Last year I created a new garden which is our last and final garden.  I held a garden contest to name it and you can view the original post here.  Paula came up with the creative name "Bishop's Delight".  This is a picture of the garden this year.  The "New Hampshire Purple" geraniums have really filled out and the "Jackmanii" clematis vines have grown to the top of the trellis.  This garden sits in front of a birdhouse so the birds have something to enjoy!

Thank you for visiting and for all your lovely comments.

Your "Jackmanii" clematis vines are such a beautiful color.. I will have to go back to see what zone you live in.. my plants never come back the next year, even tho I'm in zone 9.. it's just too hot and swampie for such delicate flowers? Beautiful garden you have created!

Hi Donna
I like this garden. I'm a big fan of hardscaping so right away I find the border attractive and the plants have filled in nicely. Is it an obelisk that the clematis is climbing over? Great name for the garden too, themes are always fun.
