a few more garden pics

We have several different kinds of tall grasses in the garden. This one, called ‘Morning Light’ is beautiful in a breeze.

A bit hard to see the variegation of the grass in this picture, but the tall grass in the background is zebra grass. This is a favorite when we have plant sales.


The tall pampas grass occasionally reseeds itself in a nearby flowerbed. We’ll dig it out and offer it at a future plant sale.

This ‘Royal Standard’ hosta at the front steps has become quite large. It has beautiful clear white flowers.

The hydrangeas at the front of the house are covered in shades of pink, lavender and purple.


Can’t have too much Russian Sage. This airy blue-lavender plant is a beautiful addition to the flower beds.

    Hi Rhonda. Wow! That hosta IS big. Your hydrangeas and daylilies are stunning. I love russian sage, too. I gotta get me some more. Your garden tour was impressive. Have a great 4th!

    Rhonda, Your garden reminds me a bit of mine with the grasses, yarrow, and daylilies (and hostas). You inquired about the rain lilies. I do take them in over the winter. They go inside in a pot and are not watered at all. When spring comes, I begin watering them and take them outside.
    Happy 4th of July!

    Lovely lilies and Russian Sage! I think your grasses mixed with the perennials looks so nice.

    Happy summer & hugs from Savannah,Cherry
