Fall is bulb planting time — and spring planning time.  So I’ll offer a few photos of different spring and summer plants as thought starters.


Hostas under a Japanese maple — classic combo for that shady spot.


This lovely double wild daylily is from a dear friend and neighbor.  Adds a nice accent of hot color in the mid-summer slump.


An azalea that I picked up at the arboreteum annual plant sale. Haven’t seen this variety since.

Let photos and memories of your favorite season inpsire your planting plans.  Happy gardening!
