Who knew that the jumbled mass of fairy tale branches and twigs that came alive at night and when we weren't looking is a gorgeous Wisteria, now in full bloom. At some point I will need to prune this as well as the trumpet vine across from it, then slowly coax them to climb an archway between them, instead of their current clinging situations in which they are bringing down the shed, gutters, and house in the name of progress.

Where the arch will go. Wisteria on left and trumpet vine on right. 


  1. I vote for a nice wrought iron arch that is sturdy and can handle the weight of these two vines

  2. Did you know you can shorten your long urls with AdFly and get cash for every visitor to your short urls.

Spring Bride Duet

For a wedding gift to me, my husband bought me the Spring Bride Duet - a combination of Cosmopolitan Darwin Hybrid tulips and Stainless Daffodils. We planted them in the fall of 2015, and they have faithfully come up each year. I thought the daffodils and tulips were a good combination for us in case the deer ate the tulips, the daffodils would still be standing. Also, tulips can fade over time but daffodils multiply. So far, both have come up faithfully, and beautifully, each year, and the deer have left them alone. I would buy Darwin Hybrids again - they have really strong stems and huge flowers! The Cospmopolitans color changes over the time they are up. They come up a pale peach/pink, and then slowly shift to a brighter pinkish/red.

Busy Bees

We took a walk through the conservation land behind the house, and found that while we were taking a respite, others were very hard at work harvesting pollen from the Prairie Asters:

Such a beautiful office to work in:

Moondance Roses

Two are blooming so beautifully right now. They captivated me for an afternoon, taking pictures of them from all angles.

The Russian Sage is framing them so nicely, and doesn't seem to interfere with their growth, it seems to almost protect them.
