Frost on Digitalis grandiflora

  Perennial yellow foxgloves (Digitalis grandiflora) is pretty even in ice. I am glad that they decided to join us again this year by reblooming in September on the Shade Path.



 More on Gilmore Gardens' new season soon.

I have my work cut out for me this week in the garden... and as long as l can keep my fingers and toes from freezing, I will enjoy every minute of it!

  3. Ach! Beautiful! I'm eating up your frosty pictures. : ) Yes, Julie, we do have a lot in common! How old are you kiddos? Mine are 10, 8 and 6. Two boys and a girl. They keep me hopping! I visited Pennsylvania (Dutch country) as a child and I remember thinking it was one of the most beautiful places I'd ever visited. Your pictures confirmed it!

  4. They are really stunning even in ice....I know what you mean about work in the garden. I have been full out all Sept and October catching up...still lots to do this spring since I will not get to it all, but it will wait until spring...that's the nice thing about the garden...so forgiving and patient...
