Front Perspectives of the Boulder Bed

Just a quick bonus post for tonight to show off some more perspective of the "field" of Bee Balm and Purple coneflowers, just to give you an idea of how they look in the larger garden scheme. The first shot was taken facing south (from the edge of the original bed. In the background of this one, you can see our new Black Elephant Ear in the large pot by the steps ... it's also the home to the 'Blackie' sweet potato vine I featured last week when it was blooming (and it still is).

The second shot faces north, which gives a sense of what lies beyond them in the newer corner bed where you can see the Porcupine Grass and just a glimpse of the yellow Lysimachia to the far left. To the right, you can see our infamous intersection, which floods regularly during heavy rain storms, and often strands fools silly enough to attempt to drive through what is often over a foot or two of water! Some people just never learn ....

That looks really pretty. I wish I could get a whole perspective of you yard. I bet it's filled with color.

Well there's a lot of colour for sure and more on the way too... sometime soon I'm planning on getting some wider perspectives from the front of that area, so stay tuned.

You had a shot from across the street last winter, right?

That's quite a setup you have there. I need to get Mrs. Fetched to start reading here & at Olivia's blog, she might get some good ideas & she would appreciate the different plants (especially your detailed descriptions).
