Out in the center garden there is a whole lot of texture going on. It looks a bit wild. Someone was in my garden today for the first time and she said "oh I just love the way your garden looks so wild". That about say it all. I took it as a compliment because she is another nature lover.
She was the perfect guest in that she didn't mention any of the weeds including this hulking beast. I have no idea what it is but it is about as tall as I am (5'6") and has rough leaves. I have left it in this place because I want to see what kind of bloom it has. I might be able to figure out what it is when it blooms too. Oops, I digress.
The next spot that wasn't too crispy was out by the blackberries. This is a piece of Sum and Substance I placed here where the bird bath used to sit. It hasn't grown to full proportions yet. It is filling the hole that developed when I moved the bird bath. The poor little Toad lily has lots of buds on it. I think it is waiting for a good rain before it opens.
I hope you all enjoyed seeing a few spots in the garden that aren't all that crispy. For more foliage follow ups to GBBD go to Digging, Pam's blog to see others. Or if you want to participate make an entry and go comment on Pam's blog.
