This may be my favorite view of the garden at any time of the year. The purple Crape Myrtle ‘Catawba’ is in full bloom, seen over the Japanese maple ‘Ever Red’ (not quite so red here in July), the lime green Berckman’s arborvitae, and the arbor covered Carolina Jessamin. An unidentified “watermelon” colored Crape myrtle is in the background. It is the view from our screened porch, and it seemed appropriate that we include ‘Catawba’ in this week’s vase.
My Arranger added ‘White Swan’ coneflowers and ‘Mr. Goldstrike’ aucuba.
The pink beauty on the right is the last gasp from the continuing saga of the “immortal” calla lily. This is…finally…the absolute last of the calla lilies that has lasted since it first appeared In a Vase on Monday seven weeks ago. I assure you that you won’t see it again.
It is a continuing pleasure to join Cathy at Rambling in the Garden to share what is happening in our garden this week by putting together a vase. Please visit her site to see what she and others have gathered from their gardens this week.
