Thanks,

I like the country/cottage look.
I just wanted to show some beds not just close-ups of a flower.
I might have over killed it with so many pics....

Not too many pics in my opinion. I'd love to see more. I especially love the variegated ornamental grass. Do you know which variety that is?

Patsi - Very nice blog. I love the hummer pics.

I love your Dixieland. I was thinking/hoping that mine is Dixieland because I want mine to be the Dixieland size. I can work the smaller size grasses into my garden easier than the larger ones. Your Dixieland looks brighter than what I have. You probably know more about grasses than I do. Do you think mine is Dixieland?

It sure looks like it but I'm new to grasses.
My beds are mostly shade and this one was untill we had a couple of trees taken out.
Here's a earlier picture if it helps.

Love to see more of your gardens...

Ok, since you've twisted my arm, here are some pics from my gardens. LOL

I certainly don't have the established plantings and gardens that you do, but it is my little paradise and I love it.

Had the garden shed built in the spring of 2007. I'm not satisfied with the Knockout roses planted beside it. I believe they need more sun. Going to move them this fall and plant lorepetalum there instead. I think the burgundy foliage will be nice against the shed. I love the shed.

Thanks so much for the compliment Patsi! I don't think I have enough material to blog. Maybe I will at some point. I've only had my digital camera since this spring. I'm trying to learn as I go (much trial and error) to get good pics. You are great at it. I'm picking up great tips from your postings. Thank you!
