Cocktail hour

Now in bloom: All the ingredients for a devilishly delicious drink (at least for the eyes). Does this put anyone else in the mood for a fancy cocktail, or is it just me?

Eucomis 'Sparkling Burgundy' pineapple lily
Echinacea 'Coconut Lime'
Hydrangea 'Limelight'

Ready for more plants!

As of today, my last hardscape border is in place, and ready for planting. Time to collect some new plants! I found some at the Fronderosa Frolic yesterday, including this gorgeous Schefflera delavayi from Cistus Nursery, and am really looking forward to Heronswood on 9/6.
