This week in the Garden 8/5/13

Most of you can tell I’ve been slacking a bit here on my blog!  It’s for a very good reason though! I promise!!!  I am hosting a Ladies Luncheon/Auction at my home this upcoming Sunday in honor of my dear friend Ashley Trenner.  Ashley made this statement in her last King 5 interview ~

“If there's one person's life that I can affect, then that's a beautiful gift that I could give to somebody..”  – Ashley Richards Trenner (1972-2013)

So continuing to share her message, I’ve invited 50 guests, and embraced a lot of help to do so! This will be a beautiful event in Ashley’s honor ~ I cannot wait to share with you next week how everything comes together!  Here is this weeks garden photo’s ~ Enjoy!

One question though – anyone know what this is? I planted a few of these, but can’t remember what they are?

Your beautiful home and gardens will be an amazing backdrop for the event you're hosting Tracie. I think Ashely's message will hit home with everyone.

Looks like a hot poker, but I've never grown them, so dont' know if they start out white like that. Time will tell! I do that all the time.

Looking forward to photos of your get-together.

Your garden is beautiful and is a wonderful place to honor Ashely!

I'm pretty sure your mystery plant is Kniphofia, also known as red hot poker plant. It seems a little late for it to be blooming, but the foliage and the bud sure looks like it!

Your garden couldn't be prettier. Your photos show it so well. Thanks for hosting this garden party.

Your dear friend's story left an impact on me. I have shared it with others! And your garden is lovely. Your gate is very charming! Thank you for hosting a party. Is there anything I need to do that I haven't in order to join in?
