Inspiration fra Carol's have i North Carolina

Butterfly weed, lantana, and hibiscus bloomed all summer.  One application of slow release granular plant food did an amazing job of keeping the hibiscus leaves glossy and flowers blooming nonstop for weeks on end.

I planted around 50 tulip bulbs in one container, as I saw demonstrated on a P. Allen Smith TV show.  I was so happy the purple and yellow bloomed at the same time.

My daughter planted this gorgeous combination of tulips this year for her yard in Durham, North Carolina!  She purchased the only tulip bulbs she could find at the end of the fall season on sale.  Don’t you love the colors!

Today's photos are from Carol Thompson in Charlotte, North Carolina. She says, "I took these pictures late one spring afternoon in my garden. With the sun backlighting several of the plants, it was amazing to see the play of light and dark, the shadowing, and the lovely transparency of the colors.  Included are 'Dr Tinsley' camellia, 'Blue Lady' hellebore, an unnamed daffodil, 'Fireglow' Japanese maple, an unnamed azalea, and 'Ivory Prince' hellebore.
