I thought I would give you all a few garden updates.
I continue to sow seeds both indoor and outdoor under cloches. I am a crazy fool when it comes to vegetable varieties. I am always on the look out for unique flavors or more colorful choices. I can’t wait to try Wasabi Arugula. People seem to love it. And after hours of searching (I told you I was a crazy fool) I have decided on Autumn Jewel and red acres for my cabbages. If you must know, I grow cabbages more for their beauty than for eating…..they rival any flower in the garden, in my humble opinion.
I have added two more sweet peas. What am I going to do when I can’t be sawing away at sweet pea seeds while waiting for the tea water to boil?
Also, I am trippin’ balls over a new variety of Heuchera called Spellbound. Neither one of these photos do it justice. It has the most amazing sheen and color tones and will be perfect for my Gothic garden (In the making). Black seems to compliment it best, and I’m thinking Black Mondo grass for a bed partner.
I have also found the name of this amazing flower which I will grow as an annual in my garden. It is called Trachelium “Pandora”. Finding seed for it was a real bitch, but SO worth it.
And I leave you with a photo from a neighbor’s garden. Her name is Linda Cochran, and she is one of the best gardeners in the country, not to mention an incredible photographer and incredibly kind and generous. She has a lot of photos of her garden online, and can also be found in many books. She specializes in bold swathes of color, as you can see in this photo.
Till next time……..
