The Wild Gardens

If you can brave the skeeters the wild gardens are beautiful this time of year.

I do nothing out there except mow some trails so I can walk through.

The Wildgardens August 15

That is Obedient Plant or Physostegia virginiana off to the left, Black eyed Susans  in the front and Liatris or Gayfeather in the back.  Way in the back is the Marge Grass that is looking good this year.

After so many years of greenhouses and gardening it is a treat to see what comes back year after year with no extra water, fertilizer or deadheading.  Years ago I tended this garden, I weeded by the five gallon buckets and always worried if I got behind weeding. Not so much anymore.

I am a lazy gardener. This year the good Lord has provided enough water for the gardens to flourish.  Let go and let God works for most people and I guess flowers too!

  5. Wildflower gardens are the prettiest! The obedient plants here don't bloom until late September and these are hot pink. I like your white ones.

  6. I enjoy seeing wildflower gardens. I could never pull it off. The one year I tried an eager neighbor came over with his John Deere mower and took it all down. I don't know how I survived that guy. Your flowers are doing really well. It is good when you don't have to weed anything. I am in the stage of my life to start clearing some things from the property. Old age setting in deep.

  7. I just love wildflowers and yours look really great this year. I'm sure the butterflies and bees appreciate them even more than we do. ;)

  11. Very pretty. I no longer want a lot of flowers, just a few that I know I can handle. BUT...it was fun visiting Oma's yard Mon. and being able to identify so many plants we USED to have!

  12. I am envious of your Obedient plant. Mine is not flourishing at all. Maybe I should quit watering it and see what happens. I have given up on Liatris because I can't grow them. I do wonder if it's an area thing or a gardener's fault.
    Your wild garden is very wild and lovely.

  16. Lovely! Wild gardens don't work well here, the weeds flourish too easily and drown everything out. I know, because I had perennials that I used for bouquets, including the three you mentioned, and they have all been choked out because I couldn't keep up with the weeding.
