|The Rose Garden at just 9 months old.|
This is RHS testing week for me, so I am busy reviewing my list of 300 plants that I am supposed to know backwards & forwards. :) But I could not let this week get away without share a little of what is blooming here at our new garden, Havenwood....
|A new Kalmia, Mountain Laurel, that we are very excited about to go with our native white one.|
|Is it possible that this is actually my favorite bit of the garden at the moment? I am having so much fun with our new veg garden this year!|
|And its been yummy already!|
|Steps to the Knot Garden with Nepeta faassenii 'Walkers' Low', catmint.|
|Lovely new Digitalis (foxglove) for the Knot Garden's hot color border.|
|View into the Rose Garden to the European Hornbeam hedge, Carpinus betulus 'Fastigiata'.|
|Swaths of catmint around the Birch Walk.|
|Astrantia major, masterwort, in the Rose Garden.|
|View from the road into our garden paradise. Sedum acre is keeping the curb lively.|
|Gladiolus communis ssp byzantinus, one of the stars in the Rose garden this month. It is a hardy bulb! Very easy to use.|
|Pink flowers on the Spirea 'Gold Flame', acid green florets of Alchmilla mollis, Geranium 'Orion' and Asiatic lilies.|
|My favorite: Verbascum 'Southern Charm'|
|Not bad for being only 9 months old, eh? Look here to see this area all in grass last July.|

Have a wonderful summer!
