Lots going on
There is much too much going on at the Hill house for even a short post, but I wanted to show you my favorite pictures from last week.
This is the view from the front porch.
It looks like snow on the sidewalk, but it’s the blooms of the crepe myrtle ‘Natchez’.
Pineapple lily (Eucomis comosa ‘Sparkling Burgundy’) against a background of Artemisia ‘Powis Castle’
This is my favorite of all the spectacular newbies I planted this spring.
It’s a chartreuse selection of our native poke salad (Phytolacca Americana, ‘Sunny Side Up’) against a background of the grassy Pennisetum purpureum ‘Princess Caroline’.
Ninebark ‘Diabolo’ with Pennisetum purpureum ‘Princess Caroline’ in the background.
I’m a sucker for dark purple foliage, and I just LOVE that Pennisetum purpureum ‘Princess Caroline’. Mine is about 5 feet tall. I wrote about it in the September 2012 issue of Alabama Gardener Magazine.
One of the things that has been going on here is some major downsizing, and if I was more practical, you could buy the Surf Frog Motel at the Goodwill store. But I couldn’t part with it. Many a happy amphibian has spent a weekend vacationing here. When Jesse was little, the first thing he would do when we got to the lake on Friday was find a guest. He always took excellent care of them until Sunday’s checkout time.
Well, I better run and get my stuff done. Good luck to you and whatever you have going on.
