Ah, sweet Astilbe. Hard to photograph all those gorgeous little pink flowers. Grows like a champ, doesn't mind the acidy pine soil or the fact that the robins seem to love using it for target practice.
The Seven Sisters climbing rose has just about knocked itself out blooming. The scent is incredible. Why are these last few late blooms red - everything else is fuschia!
A few years ago, my friend Jackie gave me six Evening Primrose plants. Six. I guess they like it here.
