Birthday and garden flowers
Marcia's birthday was celebrated yesterday with roses received from her brother.
We've had a hectic summer, and you may have noticed that we haven't been keeping the blog up to date.
But we're taking this birthday occasion to make a resolution to get the blog caught up to the happenings around the Studio.
We've had a poor growing season, but have some flowers that managed to produce and thrive.
As evidence, we have this display of canna lilies.
The perennial gardens also showed well. We think these pretty pink flowers are nicotinna....
A broader perspective includes developing Russian sage, black-eyed susans, and bee balm.
Our trumpet vine was blown over with a strong gust of wind. These plants are very resilient, and we'll cut the plant way back and see if it will recover.
