    your post might be wordless but I must use words to comment! A gorgeous array of summer blooms; the incredible variety of bearded Irises is boundless; mine have all finished flowering now so it was with extra pleasure that I could see yours.

    Your garden looks amazing. No caterpillars there! Thanks for visiting my New England Garden. Your hydrangeas are so blue. Do you add aluminum sulfate or is it just your low pH?


  8. Cathy says:

    I love that blue Hydrangea!

    I envy your hydrangea. I’m hoping I put enough acid down to turn my Nikko Blues blue. But, I suspect that will never happen with my very porous alkaline soil.

    Stunning photos and flowers!


  11. Andrea says:

    Wow that yellow iris i haven’t seen also, just like you not having seen hoya yet. But i love most those blue hydraengeas. I guess its pot is very basic to produce those lovely blue. About hoya, they are growing well even in temperate country gardens with extreme temps like North Sweden, Canada and the cold US states.

      Thank you, Andrea. The yellow iris was the first reblooming iris I ever saw. I had to have one, of course, and my good friend gave me a few from her garden.


  12. Alain says:

    A beautiful selection of plants. I was looking for a word to describe the yellow iris – I think that word is opulent.

    Wonderful garden you have there! 🙂


  14. Dahlia says:

    What beautiful flowers and all in your garden – wow 🙂

  17. Hi John, I happened across your blog and am so glad to see that you still are doing magic in the garden. I am painting more and more florals and gardens….wish you were still near enough for me to paint yours!

      Karen. How very nice to hear from you and glad you found my blog. Can’t believe it’s almost eleven years since we left GC. We are fine and happy here. I have had a group of plein air painters come to the garden on several occasions. You are welcome to come and paint anytime. My best to Travis.
