That first one, with the sprinkler I assume,is just fantastic!

Janie said...

It's a colorful, beautiful jungle. I like it!

Hi, Patricia!
That Impulse Garden keeps growing by leaps and bounds. I've never met a flower I didn't like. :)

Thx, Caite;
Yes, sprinkler action over the pink evening primrose.

Hi, Janie;
I hope you're having a fabulous horsie summer. Are you a member of backcountry horsemen of Utah? I hope so! I'm wondering if you're planning to do the Liberty Ride?

Hi, KC!
Long time, no talk, hope all is well. Life's been too busy but I swear I spend half my free time just doing battle with the weeds. By the way, that is not a technicality. The Beard and the Valerian are 2 distinctly different plants. One a hybridized thing and the other an all out 'I plan to own this garden' native. :)))

A beautiful jungle!

I played too. Mine are here and here.

I love all your purples and pinks. Must confess, I'm a bit of an impulsive and addicted gardener, too. I see something I like, and I don't even look at the zone anymore. Love things that grow! Love to watch the flowers open!

Stunning photos of an inspirational garden!

LOVE all of these - they're simply gorgeous. But the first one is fabulous with the sprinkler and the composition. :D

Look at your garden! I love the first one.

Mariana said...

I loved all the pictures!!!

Rose said...

This is the prettiest jungle I've ever seen, Kate! I love your Impulse Garden--I have a lot of corners in my garden full of impulses, but not one big space. Your impulses turned out to be wise decisions--it's a riot of color!

Love the impulse garden! My supposedly 'planned' garden bed greatly resembles this bed.

Melospiza said...

Impulse garden: I need that.

Lona said...

I think most of my beds are impulse beds. LOL! Yours looks pretty Kate. Mine never works out so that is why I am always moving plants. LOL! Your Valerian is so lovely.

Shady Gardener said...

What fun photos!!! (How did you And Your Camera avoid getting wet in that first one??) :-)
