Thursday in the Garden

Mommy what is the white stuff in with the Red Hibiscus?  Artemisia
Yes, Mommy it is me but what is the plants name? Artemisia
Mommy I thinks we are having a problem communicating. I am asking you what the plant is called I know what I am called.
The plant is called Artemisia too. It is also referred to as Dusty Miller so I guess I better call it that so I don't confuse you.
I have a plant named after ME! how cool.
Hey Socks, what are you doing?
I am admiring the Dusty Miller Mommy planted in the new planter that looks like a dead log.
Bad Mommy can't remember the name of the other two plants she planted with it, but they all look very nice together.

She even put some Dusty Miller in with the Purple Heart.

The Wisteria is so pretty when it is in bloom.

The Chinese Witch Hazel is doing well.

Mommy planted some Dusty Miller in the Charybdis Bed too. Along with a purple flower she can't remember the name of.

The Honeysuckle is blooming at the Hummingbird Cottage.

The Mums are still doing well.

The Gaura is blooming. It has even started to spread in one of the beds. We just love it.  For some reason it doesn't do as well in the bed right next to it.

For some strange reason our photographer liked the way the leaves on this tree looked.

Our cactus in the greenhouse is blooming. Mommy needs one of the guys to help here get it out.

And the garlic is ready.

Now we are off to Jonesie's to report to The Society of Feline Gardeners, do come with us. ~Artemisia & Socks
