I absolutely love the riot of colour in your garden! And your Butterball is adorable, too. :) (I collect roosters, so in that way, it's good your garden isn't close!) ;-)

Mary Olson

It took me several hours to look through all of your photos, and I have to say they are amazing. Could you be so kind to say what zone you are in? I have not ever seen many of the plants that you have. I read you are in Colorado, but have no idea what zone. I am in Minnesota zone 4 but might like to try my hand at some of your plants.

We also love our foxtail lilies and last year one of them self seeded.
I wouldn't be able to resist that hollyhock either. They usually re-seed. Love that iron rooster.
But nothing can beat Butterball for the cuteness factor!

Kathleen

Hi Mary.
Thanks for your nice comment. I'm currently gardening in zone 5 but previously gardened in Wyoming (zone 4) and had many of the same plants there that I now have here. Hope that helps!

How beautiful they are Kathleen. I had two yellow ones but they must have died out over the winter or this spring.The bulbs most likely rotted from all of the rain and that is a wet bed I had them in. I miss them this summer. I will have to replace them.
Butterball looks so pretty amongst the peonies.LOL! What a gorgeous little Hollyhock. I love the blooms. Have a wonderful week!

Your front garden looks fantastic! I love the look of the Emerurus ~ stately and yet very refined. I think Butterball is very handsome.

Racquel

Love, love the Emerurus blooms! So envious, I give up on trying to grow this perennial. :(

Kathleen, Your garden shots are every bit as nice as the closeups. The new hollyhock is beautiful. I wouldn't be surprised if it does seed itself into reappearing next year.

Catherine

All the pictures are pretty, but I especially love the second one with all the colors.
Our weather has been pretty sad still. Cool, gray and rain... and not much in the forecast either.

I like that Emerurus, am not familiar with it, but your photos make me want it. Nice plant to have in the garden.
Thought of you on Monday, bought a bargain Amaryllis at Park Seed ($1)....A. papilio. Planted it this morning....can't wait!!

It's pretty lucky to find your webblog!Just one suggestion: It will be better and easier to follow if your blog can offer rrs subscription service.
