We’re starting to get some color up here on the hill, even on this gloomy day!  Here is Becky’s Corner (the perennial section, named after Shasta Daisy ‘Becky’) of the Terrace Garden from both front and behind:DSC_5308

DSC_5318Flowers blooming now include Clematis ‘Jackmanii’, Stachys ‘Pink Cotton Candy’, Coreopsis ‘Moonbeam’, Veronica ‘Royal Candles’, Lamb’s Ear, Nepeta ‘Walker’s Low’, and Gaillardia ‘Arizona Apricot’.  ‘Becky’ is well budded and just about ready to go!

At the other end, Dogwood Corner is starting to brighten up a little with some marigolds:DSC_5313I am going to make it a priority to pull those daffodil and camassia fronds this week!

Here’s the  whole Terrace Garden.  The Spirea bushes are nearing the end of their pretty pink bloom cycle:DSC_5310

At the back of the house, the rock garden has also gained a good bit of color, with the roses, Dianthus, and a few Coreopsis blooming:DSC_5328


DSC_5331Again, more daffodil foliage (and irises, too, here!) to pull!

Cathy at Words and Herbs  and I both started to keep track of our garden views on Tuesdays, separately, but around the same time.  Cathy takes a picture of the same bed from the same location each Tuesday to track what changes from week to week, while I feature a long view of one or more of my beds each week, eventually cycling through all of them several times through the growing season.  Whichever way you choose, it is an interesting and instructive way to take in your garden design as a whole, and to look back to previous years to see the differences.  Please click on the link above to see Cathy’s post and check out other bloggers who are showing their Tuesday views!  Perhaps you’d like to add your own!
