MORE FLOWERS, INSPIRATION THURSDAY

Flower garden, image courtesy of Sunsetliving.com
For those new to the blog, every Thursday, we post up a photo that we have found online, sometimes years ago, sometimes recently.  The purpose is twofold...one we will be able to save them to remind us later of things we would like to do, that inspire us, and of course to share with you.

This is a lovely patch of flowers.  Here in the dog days of Summer, when everything is parched and dry, we love seeing something like this.  The colors all just blend so nicely together.  We'd love to have a patch (or two or three) like this scattered around the yard.  Someday!

Be inspired!

Beautiful array of color with the daisies, black eyed susans and can't think what those purple ones are called right off hand. Even looks like a little dusty miller mixed in.
Lamb's Ears is also a great plant for texture and beauty. I love the soft feel of Lamb's Ears

Very pretty indeed. And that artful casualness belies the work which goes into creating a space like that...

Your bees would go wild over a patch (or three) of flowers like that, especially the bee balm (monarda) and lamb's ears (stachys). Add some lemon balm and they'll be absolutely intoxicated!

Gorgeous!

Colleen said...

Not certain and don't quote me; but those purple flowers might be........
Heliotrope (Heliotropium arborescens)
Known for its sweet vanilla-tinged fragrance, heliotrope develops dense purple flower heads of in summer. gets around 3 feet tall or a bit more depending on conditions and soil as well as location.

What ever they are, they sure are pretty

Sue said...

Stunning!
I'd say Gorgeous, but Texas Rose already used that word -LOL!

those tall purple ones are Phlox, very trouble free. Just about everything in that plot is easy to grow, if you get them in this fall, they are mostly low care, self care the rest of the year.

Ahh, that's so pretty. We planted a big patch of wildflowers for the first time this year, around the base of our maple tree, and it turned out just gorgeous. I hope you get to plant some too! :)

1st Man said...

Oh wow, did you plant seeds, or growing them from small plants/seedlings? I will have to clear some dirt and see what I can create. :-)

Thanks for stopping by, come back soon!
