Taking The Long View: July 23, 2017
So I know I said I wouldn’t do the long views as a weekly thing, but I changed my mind – at least for now. So sue me.
Here’s a view from the street in front of our house. The Clematis is almost done flowering.
Coming closer, here’s a view of the Driveway Border from the sidewalk. You can see the Green-Headed Coneflower (Rudbeckia laciniata) are also coming into flower. They are the tall guys in the center. The Green-Headed Coneflowers are about 7′ tall, but the Cup Plant (not seen in this picture) is at least 10′.
Sadly, the ‘Conca d’Or’ OT hybrid lilies are starting to drop from their stems.
Here’s that view to the street from the front door. The main thing that has changed is that the Cup Plant (Silphium perfoliatum – the really tall guys in the upper right) are now full of blooms.
Here’s the view in the opposite direction.
Here’s a view of the grass path between the Driveway Border and the Front Island Bed. Green-Headed Coneflower on the right, Cup Plant on the left.
And here’s the view of the Left Bank Bed from the sidewalk. The Allium lusitanicum ‘Summer Beauty’ is showing fuller blooms and the apricot-colored ‘Egyptian Spice’ Daylilies are now able to make a visual impact.
That’s all for now.
