Our garden is filled with perennials and a few annuals, and it takes up the area around our backyard deck. This first photo is of a few "edible" plants I have in pots on the deck: strawberries (right), basil (left), and cilantro (flowering in the bottom right corner).
This photo is of the right side of the ramp leading from our driveway to the deck. The coneflowers are just starting to bloom. The white flower in the foreground is Gaura -- the blooms look like butterflies, and I just love its airy look.
We've had a lot of rain over the last few weeks, so my pots look greener and fuller than they usually do this time of year! :)
This area is one of my favorites. Just in front of it, not visible in the photo, is a small goldfish pond. The climatis is still blooming, and the daisies and daylilies have just begun to bloom. The Black-eyed Susans (foreground) and Russian Sage (right) will be in full bloom in just a couple weeks.
