I don’t feel like I have much to share from my main garden this week. It’s looking about the same. Peonies are still in bloom; the Iris have just finished up.
There is a bit of yellow now thanks to the Coreopsis.
I thought I would share a few views from my kitchen garden instead. Right outside the back door, off the kitchen, is our circular driveway. As soon as we moved in, I envisioned a garden in that inner circle. It’s perfect for a garden space: nearly full sun, kept heated by the surrounding pavement, and it never needs edging! I call it my kitchen garden and it is full of herbs and cutting flowers. Pictured here is Lavender and yellow Yarrow.
I love this combination of colors, my ‘Isla Gold’ Tansy with chartreuse foliage, and the purple flowers of the ‘Walker’s Low’ Catmint.
This year, I planted some annual Nasturtiums, just because they are so colorful, and because they are filling the space vacated by my gigantic out of control tarragon plant that I pulled out earlier this spring!
These are Walking Onions, also called Egyptian Onions. They are purely ornamental but seem right at home in a kitchen garden.
I have the circle broken into three sections by gravel paths. The smallest section holds three tea roses. The first roses bloomed this week!
