When I look out the kitchen window I see spots of color here and there. I just have to get out and walk around to see what is happening.
That stand of bright golden yellow bearded Irises are a beacon in the garden. You can see them from almost anyplace in the garden. The Biltmore redtwig dogwood shrub is almost as bright.
In the circle bed the Carmel huechra anchor the Dogwood tree (Cornus Rudtan Celestial Shadow)That spot of gold on the right is a golden Marjoram. It grows as a ground cover here. I have to take it away from some spots because it romps around. I like that in an herb.
Out under the River birch the Gold color is represented by the Spiderwort Kate. This is her time of year. Every mid summer when it heats up here and gets dry I think I might rip her out because she melts in the heat and sometimes goes totally dormant.
Every spring when I see her like this and she starts sporting some blooms I am glad I don't rip her out.
There is other more subdued colors.
I can hardly get enough of them.
Annie certainly likes the warm colorful times.
Are there any really bright spots in your garden?
