Fishtail Cottage Garden 7/20/15
So this started happening today...
The Vanilla Strawberry Hydrangeas are starting to show a slight bit of pink! I absolutely love this shrub so much that I added four more this past week to the front of my landscape. For almost a month the blooms on this shrub have been a stark white color, and as of today the show of pink hue's begin.
As the hydrangeas welcome anyone driving by, I recently filled this salvaged container with Calibrachoa and hung it on my front gate to welcome any guests. As long as they are getting watered daily it seems quite happy. (It's been in the 90's the past few days here in Seattle).
Also returning is the rose terrace roses, Winchester Cathedral and Brother Cadfael. I am not sure I mentioned that to you that I completely cut all of these to the ground as they were so full of disease (mildew and black spot) I figured I had nothing to lose by doing so. They are coming back beautifully! Brother Cadfael grows upwards and then points its heavy blossom toward the ground while the Winchester Cathedral points its face to the sky's above...anyone know why this is?
A few other pretty blooms to share with you this week are Gladiolus, Alpha Wedding Phlox, Stargazer Lily's, Double Blooming Daylily, Yellow Crocosomia, Rose of Sharon and Queeny Purple Hollyhock.
And lastly a few more 'unnamed roses this week! If you have any ideas what the names of these could be, I'd love your ideas...
Thanks so much for coming to visit! To see more photo's of my home and garden, please follow me on Facebook and Instagram as well! xoxo, tracie
