Shady Gardener

Hi Kathleen! Well-put-together! Your gardens, photos, etc. as always!! Don't worry about being in a "slump." You always come through with interesting posts and inspiring subjects. :-) How do you like Sweet Autumn clematis? I have a couple of friends that have it. My! Does it grow!


I hear you Kathleen, The continued heat has taken a toll on my energy and blogging. I want to lie on the couch and eat bon-bons with a cold compress on my head! Breakfast on your patio must be lovely with the scent of SAC wafting about~gail


The Autumn Clematis and Hillside Black Beauty images are just gorgeous Kathleen!


Kathleen I love your path, gate and arbor. And am exceptionally glad to hear about the Hardy Plumbago (ceratostigma plumbaginoides). I just bought one the other day and didn't have a clue about it. Didn't even know it was called Hardy Plumbago.
That Lily is so pretty as is your Hillside Black Beauty.
Speaking of buying that flower the other day - I bought about 20 plus and you'll probably laugh your head off as I'm telling you planting them in the muck around here is a real experience. Horrible downpours are making it impossible to take a step in the gardens without a foot of mud on each shoe/boot. Boy am I having fun!


I say, your garden really does look beautiful and your photos excellent as always. I find it really hard to blog during the summer, but now...I'm back.

I've been in a bit of a blogging slump too. Not enough energy left at night to make the effort.
What a pretty corner of your garden! Beautifully put together.
Great spot for the Sweet Autumn Clematis.
I'd love to try the cimicifuga. It's gorgeous!
Plumbago is another for my wish list. I've just recently discovered that it'll grow here. We've had a dry month too, but welcome rain fell yesterday and today. However, I'd like to be out there continuing my fall garden work! I had much the same experience as you with my Dahlias this year. Hardly any blooms at all on a couple and none on one large plant. Only 3 did OK.
