Thursday in the Garden with Artemisia

I get to show you around the garden today.

We discovered when you leave the Herman's Pride in the shade the leaves turn green. They are yellow when you plants them in sunshine.

An ornamental pepper, it died (we thinks it drowned). It is one of our gardening failures. 

The Nemesia. Mommy has planted this in the Charybdis Bed now. It looked prettier in the pot.

Devil's Trumpet

It had lots of blooms on it before the bugs got it.


The Foxglove, we are so happy with it. We bought one last year and it was all different colors. It reseeded itself and now we has lavender, pink and white foxgloves all in the bed. And it spread so well Mommy was able to transplant some to the Charybdis bed as well as the Rose Garden beds.

We are trying some of the Herman's Pride around the Whiskers bed. Mommy just planted it.

Mexican Petunias

Stokes Aster

Be sure to drop by Jonesie's to see more gardens.


  1. Such beautiful flowers. shame about the Ornamental Pepper. Our mum eityher drowns plants or doesn't water them eniough. She needs to find a happy medium

  2. Yoor flowers and garden are looking awesome. We love the foxgloves ~ they are so "English country garden" !

  3. Awww thank you for showing me and Charlie around your wonderful garden Artemisia!! We love your Herman's Pride, beautiful gladiolis, asters, petunias and your many fab foxgloves!! They are all very pretty! We are sorry about the pepper!! But you have plenty of other lovely plants to make up for this sad loss!!

    Enjoy your amazing garden!
    Take care

  4. The Foxglove is very pretty! That was a very good tour Artemisia!

  5. We love Mexican Petunias! The contrast of the green and purple is so pretty.

  6. Artemisia, you look so pretty and your garden is just lovely. Thank you for the tour!

    Love, uSSSSS

  7. Wow--that's a really nice garden! The Human never heard of half that stuff and even if she had, she would only have killed it dead anyway :-(

  8. What a lovely tour you gave us today, Artemisia. Too bad about the bugs on the devil's trumpet and the drowning of the pepper. Our angel trumpet has about six buds grwoing now. Mom is so hoping the wind and rain don't come again and spoil them. It would be so nice to see that many blooms at one time.

    Happy Thursday in the garden.

    Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

  14. Artemisia, your garden is so beautiful. We had some devil's trumput just pop up last year at the side of the house and it was beautiful. The lawn guys cut it down! They thought it just another weed. It had gotten really bit and was blooming so pretty. We have no idea where it came from but it was here for awhile until they just cut it down! Lots of love, Debbie and Holly
