Weekly Front Garden 06/02/2012

The first week of June!

Week of 06/02/2012

It was very windy this week. Getting a picture of the Mexican Feathergrass (Stipa tenuissima) standing semi-upright was not easy. All the ice plant flowers are gone now, although some rebloom is starting on the purple ones. The roses are still going, as is the society garlic (Tulbaghia violacea) and mexican evening primrose (Oenothhera speciosa). The false red yucca clump has made three bloom spikes this year - one of them pops against the blue of the house. But mostly, the front garden is blues and greens right now - the blue fescue (Festuca glauca 'Elijah Blue') peeks out from the rock border. I wonder if I should consider adding some summer blooms in the main bed? I kind of like the quietness though, especially with the pops of yellow (Sedum x rubrotinctum flowers) and purple.


  1. I love pops of color, but I also like the restraint in this bed. It goes well with all the stone on the house.

    1. The stone is definitely a statement - it wraps around the entire house! Thanks for your comment.
