National Garden Week – Day 5 – Virtual Tour

“Gardening furnishes a challenging and productive activity for our citizens, for those just learning as well as those having years of experience…”

We start today’s tour with a visit to Sheila’s garden.  Sheila has confessed a fascination with irises, and these two are just a sampling. There is much color and texture in Sheila’s garden. Pink weigela abounds and is beautiful in bloom.  That pink creeping phlox in the rock crevice is both determined and gorgeous.  And who would have thought this hot orange flower is called an ice plant.

Next up is Jeanne’s garden.  Jeanne is a whiz with shady spots. You can be, too. Lots of plants are happy to live in shade. Here, candelabra primulas thrive near a shady brook. Hostas and aquilegia are happy in shade under the deck. But all is not shade in Jeanne’s garden.  Irises are quite happy in these sunny spots.

Thanks for being with us today. Happy gardening!
