My world in color (plants)

Prairie smoke. It will get seed pods that look like smoke.
Eye Of Newt iris. I love the rich colors.
Kinshy tree peony The burgony throat is such a nice contrast to the bright yellow.
Shimanishiki tree peony
Shimadaijin Tree peony. This one is MUCH more purple in person.
Kinkaku tree peony. This one can be this color or a double apricot/orange. We were hoping for the apricot/orange. But it is pretty. This is the first year it bloomed, so who knows what next year will bring. It kind of looks like a single petaled Kinshy (photo above).
Earnest Markham clematis.
Megabucks iris. (Gorgeous colors) in front of a lupine.
I wish I could get a picture of just how black this one looks in the garden! Such a deep maroon!
Dwarf black iris. Parts of this one look just like velvet. This one is chrvsographes.
Piilu clematis  this one is new to us. Love it!
I took this picture Sat. morning. The plants around the pond are filling in so nicely now.
A side view of our backyard. These beds are very deep. I am thinking of a way that I can get more of the yard in one shot. Neighbors roof would do it. But I really don't think they would let me climb up there. lol. ut hopefully this gives you an idea of what we have done in landscaping. Front yard beds are huge also. I think we are obsessed with plants!
Thank you for taking a little walk around our gardens. Hugs, Teresa


  1. I love, love, love your garden. It becomes an addiction doesn't it, but you have made it a place of sublime beauty.

  2. Beautiful pictures, I love that black iris, I have never seen one before.

  3. Teresa, your garden looks gorgeous. I love that you have nice wide flower beds. It's very park like. Thanks for sharing your beautiful space.
