I heart foliage! July Foliage Follow-Up


This month for Foliage Follow-Up I’m wearing my heart on my sleeve — well, on my garden anyway. This is one of my favorite combos in the front garden right now: feathery, chartreuse bamboo muhly grass (Muhlenbergia dumosa); spiky, star-shaped ‘Burgundy Ice’ dyckia; and lace-textured white skullcap (Scutellaria suffrutescens ‘White’). My deer show no interest in any of these, but I sure love them.

So what leafy love is going on in your July garden? Please join me for Foliage Follow-Up, giving foliage its due on the day after Bloom Day. Leave a link to your post in a comment below. I really appreciate it if you’ll also link to my post in your own — sharing link love! If you can’t post so soon after Bloom Day, no worries. Just leave your link when you get to it. I look forward to seeing your foliage faves.

Toronto teaser Foliage Follow-Up


I returned home from the Toronto Garden Bloggers Fling last Monday, but I haven’t had a moment to post about the gardens yet thanks to a big deadline. I’m still slogging away on that, but for Foliage Follow-Up, which is today, I offer you a teaser of Toronto posts to come. Designer Marion Jarvie’s garden — richly colored through leaf and needle, not flower power — perfectly suits today’s celebration of foliage.

Purple prickly pear for Foliage Follow-Up


Purple pot and purple prickly pear — ten years after planting I’m still enjoying the color echo, especially against the gray deck railing. Vivid orange pomegranate blossoms add a fun color contrast in the background.
