Meanwhile back on the ranch

For a gardening blog, there's very little gardening being done online. I'm currently pretty pleased with the way everything is looking in my little oasis. The verbena bonariensis is coming out now, replacing the alliums earlier in the year and mingling well with the Gaura lindheimeri along the edge of the path. I've also diluted the purple with a penstemon purple bedder and a knautia macedonia to provide a bit of interest.

On the other side of the path, the crocosmia Lucifer is putting on a good show. Down below, the astrantia major provides some softness and magenta of the lychnis smacks you in the eye if you look at it too closely.
