Fertilizer Friday In my Cottage Garden

The garden is full of variety. Here a clematis (? Jackmanii) peeks over the fence.

These two clematis are planted in the same location and share a trellis. You can see the purple one is flowering toward the top of the fence, then heading over the fence (previous shot).

Looking from north to south, you can see roses, peonies and a lot of green.

The Asiatic lilies have just started to bloom. I have lots of them but so far this is the only one blooming. Two years ago, the deer ate all the buds off and I got zero blooms. Now I keep up with "deer fence."

Gladiator allium looks neat even after the blooms are gone. I hear some people spray paint these for effect.  Others dry them and use them inside for decorating.

The yarrow is splendid this year. I have red, pink and white. It will produce many seeds and I will be happy to share.

Did you know I am having a Starbucks giftcard giveaway at my other blog, Food As Art?  There will actually be THREE winners! Click here for entry information.

I am participating in Fertilizer Friday at Tootsie Time. I urge you to head over and see all the beautiful gardens!
