Ye Olde Garden

Blue and herby

As soon as I had decided on what to plant in the blue garden, the fiance and I rushed out to Strong’s to pick up some white coneflowers and asters (Wood’s Blue), but we had to make a detour first at Covington’s to see if they had anything else to add to our garden. I ended that shopping trip with 4 annual phlox, 2 scabiosa (Butterfly Blue), and a blue hosta, Prairie Sky, which was in the middle of sending up some lovely flower plumes.

The extreme heat isn’t doing our herb garden any good, so we’ve decided on twice daily watering for the time being. Having sprinkler systems is a great boon, which means the lawn is getting some much needed loving as well!
