Notes from a USDA zone 5 shade garden in Southern Wisconsin.
Hi Beth, I've seen these types also in New Zealand. I confess wildflowers in temperate countries are more floriferous or more beautiful than what we in the hot tropics have.
I've heard that New Zealand is incredibly beautiful. I hope to visit there someday. Our wildflowers are stunning in mid- to late summer. But it's a very short season. I think the wildflowers in the tropics and subtropics are stunning, too! Every earthly place has it's own unique beauty. :)
Beautiful these wild flowers with the water on the background!
Yes, it's a magical place! Especially in mid-summer through autumn. ♥ ♥ ♥
Ain't nature grand!
Yes, indeed! We are blessed to witness it.
It's a stunning setting. I hope to do a couple more posts about this "secret" little place.
What a wonderful view Beth.
It's a great setting. I little wildflower garden near the lake. I could sit there all day!
Rudbeckia and Joe-Pye?
Yes, and Liatris and Switchgrass and so much more. Soon, the Asters and Goldenrod will be blooming. :)
Sigh, so gorgeous!
It's a dreamy little place not too far from my house. It's fun to see it in different seasons. Early spring wasn't too exciting, but summer, late summer, autumn, and late autumn are its magic times. :)
It is a little slice of heaven.
Beautiful. And when I read Kalantikan's comment, it really floored me...who would have thought?
Yes, I think we tend to underestimate the beauty in our own "backyards." As I mentioned to her, every earthly place has it's own unique beauty. Ontario is stunningly beautiful, and so is the Midwest, in its own way. :)
That is a really beautiful sight. Insect heaven too.
Yes, the insects are happy there--with the flowers and the water. Sometimes the breeze off the lake keeps the mosquitoes at bay--unlike my own backyard where they thrive! But the bees and other pollinators love the little gardens by the lake. :)
I'm back! beautiful view!
Welcome back! Yes, it's a sweet little locale. I discovered it late last fall, and I'm trying to go back in different seasons to see what's blooming.
That light is really making them glow!
The light is magical in that spot. Let's see...it's looking south across the lake. Every time I go there, the light seems incredible.
It's a really pretty spot. :)
Very nice. Muted colors of Autumn. Jack
This photo was late summer a couple of weeks ago. But it's really pretty there in autumn, too. I haven't checked it in early autumn, but late autumn last year was gorgeous with the seed heads glowing in the light by the lake. :)
Gorgeous, gorgeous picture!
Thanks, Jason. This little "secret" place is my muse. :)
Water and flowers in one frame - how beautiful!
It is a beautiful setting, Tatyana. I think it's time to go back for more "therapy." ;-)
Lovely . . . simply lovely!
Thanks, Lynne. It's a very beautiful spot.
The light in that little garden is really awesome!
Wow. So lush ...
Yes, we've had warm weather and plenty of rain this summer. So, the plants are very happy!
I've just made a lovely long visit through your posts. You have such a beautiful garden. I have not posted much and visited even less during this summer of house renovation, now finished. Essentially. I'll be visiting much more regularly and watch how the seasons progress in your northern garden.
Thank you, Pat. This particular spot is not in my garden, but it's not too far away so I can visit often. What a kind comment. :) I'm glad you made it through the home renovations and are on the other side to enjoy them. It sounds like you have some grand plans for the garden ahead!
Thanks for stopping by!(Your comment might not appear right away. PlantPostings uses comment moderation, and we read every comment before we publish.)
