May the pictures commence (as I will be doing in just a few days!).
The new bridge.
My maybe favorite plant, Eupatorium altissium 'Prairie Jewel.' Lovely golden spring foliage turns into speckled cream and green turns into thousands of white flowers insects adore.
'Prairiefire' crabapple blooms are actually more purple than this in sunlight.
'Coralburst' crabapple is growing left.
Corlaburst blooms begin red, turn rose, end in pink.
The only color of tulips I will ever have.
Can't remember the name of this smokebush, but the spring and summer leaves are gold, and in fall they turn to most of the colors in the rainbow.
'Autumn Brilliance' Serviceberry blooms and buds.
If I had fewer perennials I wouldn't have to wait until fall for things to look magical. But I can wait. It's worth it. Boy is it worth it.
