. . . abstracted the garden?
Okay, this first picture is not really abstract, but I thought it was pretty cool. In the middle of the sunken brick patio out in the yard, there is an urn on a pedestal. Every year I try out different unusual combinations of plants. This year, the area is becoming more shady as the little trees around the patio have grown, and my urn contains a large autumn fern, a beautiful begonia, and a couple of coleus, among other plants. I guess it could be abstract. . . it's all about texture variations, color, and shape.
This is a hosta leaf, up close and personal.
and this is one of my favorite pictures. It's a rock on the garden path. Something sat on this rock for the entire winter, and apparently the shrubs around the rock sent out roots that wander over the surface of the rock.
No peony pictures today, although there's a dynamite purple one in full bloom right now. To combat the deer that have come back, eating the tips of the rose bushes, I sprayed Liquid Fence yesterday. The sprayer jammed, and I got the stuff all over my hands. I still smell it, despite repeated hand washings. It must work, because not one deer has approached me.
