BLOOMING PAVERS, ARBORS, AND WINDOW BOXES

The long awaited blooming season of the creeping thyme has finally arrived. It seems our brave experiment of ripping out lawn and replacing it with pavers and creeping thyme last summer is paying off in a big way: big on beauty and low on maintenance. I'm continually in awe of God's creation's ever changing beauty!

Yes, some of the iris are still blooming! This is Laced Cotton in the foreground with 2 climbing Blaze roses over the arbor.The pansies have especially loved this cool weather. I filled all my pots with them back in February. Usually I would have had to replace them with petunias by now, but they're still going strong. The honeysuckle vine is doing especially well this year as well, even if the strawberries aren't.
