The rains have been incredible in Dallas for weeks and we are all sick of feeling soggy. But the garden always reveals another point of view...capturing here the luscious “after rain” feel on the leaves in moonlight.

Trick or treat? Well... Our trick is a treat!! We can wave a magic wand and make Hummingbirds appear! . . . Our wands are blooms of Hummingbird Sage, aka, Salvia spathacea. (White and Cleveland Sage can also perform this trick.) . . .

This is the #color #green that Nature reserves for spring and for golden #autumn days. Our delicate maidenhair #fern , strong and #beautiful even after a frost, is a mass of #glowing green light for the #shadegarden. Perfect for adding #texture and movement to the #garden , and it's #deerresistant too! #adiantum #maidenhairfern #foliage #foliageplant #perennial #shade #plants #plantlife #naturallight #nofilter #leaf #frond #fernfrond #instaplant #gardenlife #ctgrown #DeepRiver #connecticut #connecticutphotographer #plantsmakepeoplehappy

Quello delle Fuchsia non era un genere che amavo particolarmente, poi conobbi @marta.stegani , unica vivaista italiana specializzata, e mi fece cambiare idea. Non sono piante facili, ma chi ha una certa capacità di osservazione e ne capisce le loro esigenze, regala molte soddisfazioni. Rimasi sorpreso nell’apprendere che alcune di esse crescono anche in piena terra, andando in riposo vegetativo in inverno e ripartire poi in primavera. I fiori sembrano ballerine che in questo periodo danno spettacolo, ma esistono specie con forme più cilindriche, a pon-pon o con i sepali ricurvi dando ulteriore eleganza alla pianta. 🌾 🇬🇧 That of Fuchsia wasn’t a genre that I particularly loved, then I met Marta Stegani, the only specialized Italian nursery, and made me change my mind. They aren’t easy plants, but those who have a certain ability to observe and understand their needs, give many satisfactions. I was surprised to learn that some of them grow even in the ground, going dormant in the winter and then starting again in the spring. The flowers seem to be dancers that show spectacle in this period, but there are species with more cylindrical shapes, with pon-pon or with the curved sepals giving further elegance to the plant.

Have you ever noticed how some plants seem to take on a life of their own in the garden? Like this hosta, appropriately named 'Wheee!' Its super ripply leaves kind of look like they're going for a ride on the tilt-a-whirl, don't they? Come on, use your imagination! 😉 (Perennial in zones 3-9, part shade to full shade, 11-18" tall--now available in our online store) #provenwinners #perennials #hosta #shadeplants #shadegarden #hardyplants #fantasticfoliage

Another little secret garden nook.. it makes me happy that when we rebuilt this gate, we inset the wood from the old gate, complete with the bb holes & gouges of 20+ years. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In between cooking, photography, trying to grow food & develop recipes, (as well being a chicken mama now, in addition to the 3 dogs, a cat & several thousand bees😬), I actually have a full time job designing & building sustainable gardens. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There are plenty of times when it seems there aren’t enough hours in the day, and certainly not enough space in the head! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I *try* for beauty & meaningfulness in my days, pursuits & intentions, be it food, flowers, plants, gardens, people, places, but... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ let me tell you, I’m NOT always successful. Yep, sometimes I really wonder what’s the fucking point. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When I lose the plot like this I *try* to be proactive, because if I run or hide, for me that just compounds the weight of the dark feelings. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Instead, I *try* to appreciate a lovely vignette in a garden, to feel the accomplishment of learning or teaching someone about our local environment, to enjoy a moment of feeding the chicken a piece of tomato, of designing a successful garden for someone (and convincing them to grow veggies), to feel the satisfaction of taking that loaf of bread from the oven and eating a piece still warm with butter, or hell, just to get caught up with quotes & invoices (never) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ And hiding under the covers with a book does come into play at times despite all this effort 🤭😳 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What I’m saying isn’t unique or special or groundbreaking, it’s just life as most of us likely live it. But from time to time, for me, it helps to put words like this down on paper, to give myself a time out. Just like I did for my now 24 year old Jasper, when he was two 😉😘 . . #wisteria #reclaimedmaterials #secretgardens #sunsetmag #lifeandthyme #gardendesigner #gardendelights #sustainablegardening #cultivateyourowngarden #heitermoments #gardeninspo #gardentherapy #sunsetplants #growwest #thegardenconservancy #shadegarden #apld

先日草刈りと冬に備えての草花でないもの増やし配置替え。 冬にになると草刈る必要もなくなるけど植物も殺風景になるので複雑-_-

What my shade garden looked like yesterday. Begonias, coleus, maidenhair fern, hydrangeas, with color galore! This morning I woke up in central Oklahoma to 36°. Even though it isn’t freezing, it’s close, and a lot of the plants in this garden, including the coleus, don’t like temperatures below 45°. Oh well, fall isn’t completely over anyway. There are still the mums and asters to enjoy. #GardenBlogger #OklahomaGarden #oklahomagardener #ShadeGarden #BeforeTheFreeze #herecomeswinter #gardeninspiration

Creating interest near and far in your garden can easily be done by combining a variety of plants with varying foliage and leaf shapes and shades of the same color. And with a carefully placed focal point, such pot or birdbath, in the distance, you add depth and breath to the view, thereby making it seem bigger than it really is. #happygardener #happygardening #garden #gardening #foliage #leaves #grasses #woodland #shade #shadegarden #trees #plants #green #gardenstyle #gardenphotography

One from the archives. How grey is the weather today? I've been sat on the couch all day writing up blog posts and cuddling the cats while Shanes been working on the van again. Guys, it's almost finished!

Viste dall’alto con questo colore mi ricordano delle formazioni ghiacciate, in realtà l’Astilbe crea infiorescenze a pennacchio piumose e, a seconda delle specie assumono diverse tonalità, restano decorative anche nel periodo invernale assumendo sfumature rugginose. Sono piante da mezz’ombra che andavano di moda fino agli anni ’90 finite poi per essere dimenticate. È piuttosto inspiegabile perché sono piante rustiche e poco esigenti, le trovo eleganti e aggraziate grazie all’altezza (superano il metro di altezza) e dal fogliame che ricorda quello delle felci. Irresistibile per un buon giardiniere che vuole giocare con forme, tessiture e densità. 🌾 🇬🇧 They see from above with this color reminds me of the icy formations, in fact the Astilbe creates feathery plume inflorescences and, depending on the species they assume different shades, they remain decorative even in the winter period assuming rusty nuances. They are half-shade plants that went out of fashion until the 90s, then ended up being forgotten. It’s rather inexplicable because they are rustic and undemanding plants, I find them elegant and graceful thanks to the height (over forty inches in height) and the foliage that resembles that of the ferns. Irresistible for a good gardener who wants to play with shapes, textures and density.

(Continues Tri-Statemeeting)Some of us visited the Rock Garden between and after the talks (Brendan Kenney, Elisabeth Zander, Michael Hagen, and Vojtech Holubec in the photo). Everyone was happy to see some plants still blooming beautifully like Tricyrtis flava and T. macramtha ssp. macranthopsis, and Salvia glabrescens ‘Momobana (=pink flower in Japanese)’. The plants in the Rock Garden seemed to be enjoying a nice and cold day. #mcnargs #nargs #nybg #rockgarden #fallseason #fallblooming #tricyrtis #tricyrtisflava #tricyrtismacranthopsis #salviaforshade #salviaglabrescens #rockgardenplants #woodlandplants #shadegarden

Nothing fancy. Just trying to help Mother Earth and God’s creatures slowly fix the bare, compacted soil in our backyard. We rent and have large dogs so it’s a balancing act. . I added four more Christmas Ferns (Polystichum acrostichoide) to this area. They are native to the Northeast from New Brunswick down to North Carolina. Deer don’t like to eat them. They aren’t picky about soil (but prefer drier conditions) and some of their fronds will remain evergreen. . I planted two this spring. One drowned in all the rain. Fingers crossed that the new ones will be happy. I added a layer of compost to suck up more moisture (organic matter does that) and mulch to buffer the rain as they grow. . Do you have a problem area in your yard that needs a little TLC? What have you done to try to address the problem? 🌿 . .
