My favorite blog of all time ever is Posie Gets Cozy, and this post just hits it out of the park. Her garden pictures are so beautiful they hurt my heart a little. I love delphiniums, but delphiniums hate my garden. I want delphiniums (sigh).
Notice the beautiful golden tinge to the pictures in the blog post. I think I know how she does that. She uses the curves tool, goes into the blue curve, and pulls it down. I tried with a picture of my own, and it worked.
Here is my “green” columbine, which turns quite white in my garden. I’m glad I took this picture because the deer ate it last night.
And here’s my other giant allium, a white one. It caught a maple seed. The maple seeds have been falling like snow for four days now.
Iris <3. If you have some money to spend in your garden, spend it on some nice irises.
I don’t remember what this groundcover is called, but it is supremely happy in the patio bed and I have three of them. Love it.
And I have five of these mounding blue geraniums, which I hope will get bigger every year. The deer ate some of these last night, too.
Sometimes when Mimi and I are walking on the trail we’ll pass an out-of-towner standing dead still and watching deer in the woods. Usually they stop us and point out the deer with excited whispers. We are always polite.
And my favorite iris, a medium-height one with nice sharp contrast.
