​Pam — Temps have suddenly dropped but we still have more greens than red and gold.

Jenny — ​I'm leaving a patch that I think I can keep from spreading so much. And I am trying to grow some as an outdoor container plant. We'll see what happens.

​So true! I am keeping one patch that I think I can control . . .

Jenny — Even up here I think the best tulip displays get dug up and redone annually. I grew a white peony tulip from Old House Gardens that was great and did return very well. But I just planted them without much forethought and killed them trying to move them a couple of years later. So much of gardening is learning the hard way by personal experience!

Lisa — ​Mine always seem to have pretty tattered leaves by the time the flowers open.

Rae — ​We plan on using it for reading, cocktails, coffee and just a quiet place away from the house and chores! He's just finishing putting on the doors and may get some of the inside work finished before winter. Jeanne — Mark is fully retired now. Gave up his part time job at the museum to do art etc. full time!

Lisa — Normally a tea house would have translucent windows but we wanted to be able to enjoy those views. Altoon — Definite attention to detail — which is why he's been working on it for so long. Exterior just about done now.

​Erin — I know what you mean. The last few winters have been so long and snowy that it's hard to accept that that's what will happen next. Just saw a photo of the pond on 4/6 last spring and there was significant snow still on the ground. Horrid thought! But we're having a tiny bit of rain at the moment so I am counting my current blessings.

Erin — ​I meant that usually I see mushrooms after it rains, but it hasn't rained for a while here. Just planted an order from Hillside Nursery and am hoping it rains tonight or tomorrow as predicted.

Lisa — I had not thought of it that way but that is true from everything I've seen on garden tours! Thanks for that insight.

Altoon — You are right, of course. Even the hay bales have changed and are now those white plastic "snakes" out in the field. Progress and efficiency but less visual beauty in the landscape. Door County is up in Wisconsin's "thumb" and has a tremendous number of log buildings still in good condition, including some barns.

Altoon — That garden had a lot of mirrors, bright colors and glittery objects but the fact that the trays were no longer shiny made them so much more interesting, especially on that pale green wall.

Lisa — Ive had really good luck with the martagon variety Mrs. R.O. Backhouse which is peachy-pink. They are about 5 ft. tall and stunning. My red ones are shorter and much slower to increase.

Erin — Why am I not as surprised as I probably should be?! Her garden is definitely picture perfect. I have a few more upcoming posts of her great ideas. Beautiful weather here so I am off to weed, which is easy after so much rain — which also made many more weeds as well.

Wrap around luxury is a perfect description!
