How Does Your Garden Grow
How about your experience in the garden and flower beds?
Trouble in the garden
And some that gave me trouble…
- Japanese Beatles doing their damage.
- Boxwood hedge that we have been treating for years for leaf minor
- Shasta daisy was outstanding last year but not so much this year.
- Powdery mildew on the brilliant white phlox..
- Ferns on the northern exposure look green and healthy in the spring but as summer continues, even with ample water, they turn brown and ugly.

Wow! Awesome one Lorraine. I'm hearing this rhyme now very often 🙂

I just found your blog. What a lovely centerpiece. I sure hope the dog gets better after the visit for the dental cleaning. Good information about keeping your pet's teeth clean.
The flowers in your vase and those in the photos are fantastic, your garden must be amazing! Neither my husband nor I are much good at gardening, we keep it tidy but that's about it. I have a lower back problem which prevents me from bending and that's frustrating because I would love to be able to plant and weed more. To be able to see your beautiful photos and those of other bloggers is all the more special
These flowers are beautiful. The colors are outstanding. Blessings, Catherine
What beautiful views of your gardens. I know the frustration of the mildew on the impatience. There really isn't anything as spectacular for a shady spot, but you might try Martha Washington geraniums. I've had good luck with them in the semi-shade.

Add flower arranging to your list of talents. Beautiful!! I adore all those purples….you certainly have a green thumb! HOPE you have a great week.
You could try New Guinea impatiens. Do you like them? They are resistant to downy mildew. My MIL planted them this year and while not totally the same they are still lovely and great for a shady spot. You gardens are always pretty even with its little pests.

Oh my, what a perfectly gorgeous centerpiece! I am not a gardener at heart but I do like to have a patio garden, at best. Usually by now, everything is withered and drying up but this summer with cooler than usual temps and more rain, they have lasted longer. I haven't many Japanese beetles this year either…lucky me! 🙂
