I found it charming that Philip at Philip’s Garden Blog came by for a second visit (and comment) for my Digging Dog visit and post. I fully understood, though. It had been a big challenge to narrow down my focus of the many fantastic images I was able to capture while there. After some thought I’d opted for the perennial beds. But, oh my goodness! So much more to share. And here, with Digging Dog assistant Lynn’s help in IDing these individual plants (by phone!) I am going to indulge in a doubledip to be able to offer you a bit more, fancifully accompanied by an appropriate lyrical soundtrack from “West Side Story”–and a teeny surprise.
Persicaria amplexicaulis ‘Atrosanguinea’
I feel pretty
Oh so pretty
I feel pretty and witty and gay
Geranium ‘Ann Folkard’
And I pity
Any girl who isn’t me today
I feel charming
Oh so charming
It’s alarming how charming I feel
And so pretty
That I hardly can believe I’m real
Crocosmia, Geranium (Cranesbill) ‘Johnson’s Blue’, Alstroemeria ‘Dusty Rose’
See the pretty girl in that mirror there?
Who can that attractive girl be?
Such a pretty face
Such a pretty dress
Such a pretty smile
Such a pretty me!
Antonia in “Flags of Our Fathers”
I feel stunning
Feel like running
And dancing for joy
Tanacetum vulgare ‘Isla Gold’
And I’m loved by a pretty wonderful—world!
Birthday Girl on the Beach…
Yet another Princess Cake…
Love and garden hugs, and special Birthday Wishes to my (very pretty) Daughter!
