I’ve written before about Japanese Anemones…so let’s do it again!
They are truly one of the delights of autumn. At once colorful and yet delicate and always lovely. They are almost stately on their long thin stems that then make such perfect cut flowers.
And here, the ubiquitous ‘Richard Ahrens’ mixed with Russian Sage for a most lovely fall arrangement!
They do best in part shade.. and yet those above in the green pitcher are doing well in a very hot and sunny spot. They DO need a lot of water..but look at them: they look happy right?
Today was quite a day in my terrace garden: we dug up ALL the soil for a 12″ depth and replaced it with enriched topsoil; that was after I dug up ALL the plants and bulbs and set them aside. So now comes the fun part of planting some brand new hydrangeas, deciding which lilies I will want, looking at dahlias for the spring and perhaps planting some pansies for the winter.
It’s busy around here as the warm weather continues…
I’m working on something special for you for next week, so check back!!
