I have some more garden photographs for you today. These were taken at the Cross Estate gardens, which I showed you here earlier in the week. In addition to the shade garden I showed you, there is also a beautiful formal walled garden, filled with gorgeous perennials. Don't you love these soft yellow iris?
Yes, the garden has very formal bones, but the plantings billow out over the paths in a very romantic style. Love it!
The brick pergola is covered with wisteria. In early May, it is alive with the drone of bees, visiting the long purple racemes. It is a wonderful spot to sit and contemplate the whole garden.
Isn't this peony beautiful, with it's soft pink colors?
I think I've already said that blue is my favorite color in the garden. Isn't this beautiful?
Mmmm, gorgeous columbine.
Oh how I love this large Italian pot, surrounded by dianthus and lamb's ears and other beautiful flowers and herbs.
Dictamnus -- old fashioned gas plant. Such a funny name for a pretty plant.
Oh how I love that stone wall, too. Gorgeous!
A gate out through the pergola leads to a rhododendron walk. I hope you enjoyed our little tour. Have a wonderful weekend, dear bloggers. :)
