this is a new combination of plants i'm putting in: liatris (the purple) and coreopsis (the yellow). i'm finding them a wonderful pairing and really like their contrasts in color and form. the tags optimistically put their cold tolerance at -40 degrees. we'll see . . .
the daisies are happiness incarnate.
the peppers are going gangbusters which isn't usually the norm . . .
so far just a few tiny green tomatoes so i won't bother showing those off just yet.
but the snow peas are yummy and plentiful . . .
i love this rose. it's a climber called jacob's coat (i think) and is new to our garden this year. i hope it does well and survives the winter (aka: hardiness test) to come back next year. i figure if a plant comes back three years running it's here to stay. only the toughest make it.
