Gazebo Garden Stroll
As the end of August approaches I've been enjoying the late summer blooms. The weather has been cooler and more pleasant. I hope you will join me for a quiet summer stroll around the gazebo.
They can't seem to decide what color they really want to be :-)
They add a bit of romance, don't you think?
I have been so pleased with my 'Blue Chip' butterfly bush this year.
David Austin roses are still my favorite. 'Mary' is as fragrant as they come.
A small patch of purple and pink phlox ...
Most of them were snacks for the bunnies.
Leucanthemum 'Becky' blooming profusely in beautiful white.
The clematis I purchased earlier in the summer is now blooming. This variety is 'Diamantina' by Raymond Evison.
When the flowers open they create a three-tiered effect. As the outer petals drop, the flower will change shape resembling a pom-pom. It is hard to believe the above flower now looks like this.
Texensis 'Princess Diana' has miniature, tulip like flowers with a deep pink central bar.
Clematis 'Jackmanii' is a classic with its blue-violet blooms.
Campanula is covered in beautiful bells ...
The dangling bells look so pretty in the sunlight and swaying in the breeze.
Two urn planters flank the gazebo door filled with annuals.
Nemesia 'Opal Innocence' was placed in the center ...
Surrounded by Superbena 'Lilac Blue' ...
and gorgeous variegated petunias.
Thank you for strolling the garden with me today. Did you see a favorite flower?
