Very nice! Thanks for sharing. Happy T13!

Wow those are beautiful!!! I especially love the bell flowers. I didn't realize that clematis could grow so far north. I guess it must have lumped it together with bougainvillea in my mind. Gorgeous Garden!

Jennifer McKenzie said...

Beautiful, Julia! Your garden shows the love you have for gardening. So impressive.

I love them all! If only I could live in a place with a garden, and not in a busy metropolis where you see drab technology at every turn.

Very pretty. I really like the peonies. It's not cold enough to grow them here in Auckland.

Its looking better than mine. Mine started out great but between the rain pounded the plants to the ground and the STUPID ants eating my marigolds I'm back to square one. ARgh...

Travis said...

I think I've decided that I like big substantial flowers...peonies, rhodies, carnations, roses. These kinds of big blossoms are very appealing.

I like a few delicate flowers, too. But my preference is for the bigger ones.

If you ever come visit me, make sure you come with gardening ideas. I want this sort of gorgeous lushness in my own yard!
