We are limited in what we can grow here because of an abundance of trees and beaucoup shade.
My neighbor, however, can grow just about anything, anywhere, anytime (under the same conditions).
Her entire front yard is currently abloom with phlox. Lavender, white, magenta.
This is just a narrow glimpse. (I am really getting lazy with this iPhone. My camera's upstairs. I'm downstairs. Yada yada.)
One of the fun things about Donna's yard is you just never know what's going to pop up.
Ever changing. A delight for the eye.
