Today, I'm resting my back and starring at garden books. I'm trying to decide two important garden tasks. Where should I put the 'Disneyland' rose I acquired this weekend? And what should I do with a mass of garden pinks that looks silly towards the back of the border b/c they're short, but even weirder at the front b/c the foliage matches the grass so closely... I am torn because moving the pinks now will stunt their upcoming bloom, but I can't stand looking at them like they are much longer.
Meanwhile here's what looks great in the garden right now.
Heuchera 'Lime Rickey' glows in the shade beside a red astible.
On other end of the same bed a young golden leaved bleeding heart is preparing to bloom.
In the back border golden alyssum pops beside penstemon 'mystica' foliage.
The alliums are all blooming right now. Some of my favorite blooms all year. I even had a woman stop and ask about them yesterday. (I sent her home with some centaura montana, which she also admired). I love the look on people's faces when I tell them they are ornamental onions!
