Happy New Year! This is the First Mosaic Monday of 2012, and I thought that I would post a mosaic that was a look back at some of my garden photos for the year.
The next two images were taken a day apart out my front window. The trees in our neighborhood have been exceptionally late in dropping their leaves. The beginning of last week my Sweet Gum was nearly full of leaves. The next day, after a wind and rain storm, there were far fewer leaves on the Sweet Gum. These two images show a marked difference.
In October, one of our neighbors had a whole row of carved pumpkins. We didn’t carve any, ourselves, but did buy as many different colored and shaped pumpkins as we could.
Last fall we found a wonderful grass nursery in our town. This pennisetum, called Little Bunny was one of the grasses that we purchased. I am getting really interested in grasses, and would love to have more.
This dahlia, Lorana Dawn, is one of the many dahlias blooming in my garden this last summer.
The red clematis was a new acquisition that I got this last summer. It is still in a pot and will stay there for at least a year until it matures a little more.
The crocosmia Lucifer is a full and lovely staple in my garden. The hummingbirds go nuts over the flowers and I have had to set up a barrier so the cats don’t get too close to them.
The next photo is of a frilly shasta daisy with a yellow center. I love this daisy.
The orange daylily is one that was planted in our garden when we moved in. It is double and is very prolific. I have lots of these that I want to plant in more parts of my garden.
Well, thats about it for our first Mosaic Monday of the New Year. Thanks to Mary at Dear Little Red House for being the hostess.
