Kia hora te manno
Kia whakapapa paumamu te moana
Kia tere te Karohirohi

May the calm be widespread
May the sea glisten like the greenstone
And may the glimmer of summer dance across your pathways

Blue/purple and yellow garden.

I have been working on my *Yellow and Blue/purple* garden this last season. I plan on planting yellow Gladiola, blue iris, and some of the yellow and blue spring bulbs so I will have color all through spring to late fall.
As always, click on pictures for larger view.


The red hydrangea, (in front of the angel) I still have to decide if I will move it or not. It seems to be happy growing here, so it may be the only plant which is not blue/purple or yellow.
I still have the usual chicken wire around the garden to keep all those long- eared furry friends of mine out of the garden.




I think it is about time for another trip to the garden center. this is a great time to by perenials, as many plants are on sale at the end of the season.
These pansys are quite lovely.










I have three salvias all of a different shade of blue





Perhaps a few ferns and hostas would look nice in the shaded part of the garden.

Wow! I am very envious. You have a beautiful garden. I heard once that a persons' yard reflects the character and personality of the person who lives inside the house.

Hi KeeWee...save some shade for some new Hosta's coming on Tuesday. They are ready to get some tender loving care from your fabulous "green thumb"!!!!

Pretty flowers. Now that I have a garden for the first time in 8 years, I'm looking forward to nurturing and pottering ;-)

Hi KeeWee!

Congratulations to your nice garden blogg and a warm hello from Germany! I especially like the violas of your last post, they are one of my favorite flowers.
Unfortunately, we have losts of rain this August, after the big heat in July.
My garden blogg is in German (my relatives don't speak English) but do not hesitate to come over for a virutal garden visit, I hope the pictures speak for themselves!
Regards,
Anita
