This is one of my oldest gardens. It looks its best in the spring when all the bulbs are blooming. My patch of delphiniums is getting bigger. They catch a lot of attention from passer-bys. This is the part of the garden that people can see from the road.

Your gardens look lovely. They are plants chosen by you (well most of they I presume) and that makes them all one-of-a-kind gardens. Good work! Gardening is an ever changing process.
I love that delphinum! The blue grabs you into your yard!

Dianne- Welcome to my blog, and thank you very much. The delphiniums are fast becoming my favorite plant I think. Although that title is constantly changing because ther are so many wonderful plants out there!

love that blue color. I wish I could grow delphiniums. I have tried a few times, but no much luck getting them to return the next year.

Zoey- Are there other gardeners in your area that grow them? Maybe the conditions just aren't right where you live. Even in our area, though, I have been told by numerous gardeners that they can't get delphinium to grow for them. So it seems that they are fussy, just not for me. That's OK, because I kill enough easy to grow plants to make up for it!

Your gardens are great! I think you are being too hard on yourself. My gardens look done because all the big rhodo's were in the garden when I moved in. I just moved them around. My trees and the 3 large Taxus I bought big. I like instant results. I'm very impatient. The boxwood grows fast and lets face it, I live in a great gardening zone! It's pretty easy to garden where I live.
