Among Friends

Here are a few vignettes that were looking especially attractive in my garden this week as we transition into August.

In the shade garden a Hakone grass, a variegated hosta, maiden hair and ghost ferns form a living quilt that’s soothing, but not boring.                                                                                                                                                        photo While out on the sunny prairie, liatris, coneflowers, Russian Sage and  Rudbeckia held court.                                                                                                              photoAnd a lavender Veronicastrum leaned in to share some gossip with its sturdy Prairie Dropseed neighbor                                                                                      photoSometimes in the garden, it’s blending in that really makes a plant stand out.
