More summer flowers

The deck planters develop more fully.  The vinca vine on the lower right spreads as usual, and the spirea plants in the background add color and volume to the growth patterns.

The mugo pine on the right adds height and soft greeen to the deck area.  The astilbe plant at its base contributes the soft violet stalks.

This deck planter is flanked by rosemary and thyme.  We leave them on the deck to protect them from hungry critters.  So far, so good.

The old spectacular trumpet vine blossoms for the 25th+ year.  We trim it every fall, and it returns faithfully.
