Wide Shot – July 2014
Sorry I am late on my post – we were away on a lovely Canadian vacation for my beautiful sister, and new brother-in-law’s wedding. I got to come home to a lot of blooms; I always miss my garden when I am away…The Texas sage (Leucophyllum frutescens) are in full bloom, indicating we had some rain. Bees are buzzin’ !Butterflies are loving the blooms on the purple coneflower (Echinacea purpurea) as well!This picture illustrates my plan for the foundation beds finally coming to pass! When I designed the beds close to the house, I wanted it to look like the silver galvalume roof was molten metal dripping onto the ground in layers… melting off the roof. Above you see the artemisia ‘powis castle’ and then Dalea greggi oozing as the lowest layer.On the other side of the house I have a tapestry of silver oozy goodness – Dalea greggi, silver ponyfoot (Dichondra argentea), and creeping germander (Teucrium cossonii).Thank you all for your participation in this meme, I love all your posts VERY MUCH!
See you in August!
Please join me in posting a wide shot of your garden the first of every month, or anytime you get to it in the month. It is my hope, that this exercise will assist us all both in the appreciation of our gardens as they grow and change, and in growing and learning ourselves to recognize changes we may want to make.

“molten metal dripping onto the ground in layers” — awesome, Heather! It’s the coolest pool of molten metal I’ve ever seen. Love your vision.
Thank you, mentor! -xericstyle
