I know I keep saying this….so hoping you won’t mind reading it again.
DO NOT START 3 MAJOR PROJECTS ALL AT THE SAME TIME!
There, I feel so much better now.
It’s been so busy, finishing projects, starting new ones, garage sales and some of the best vintage and barn sales I’ve ever been to!!!
Now I just need to photograph everything to share with you.
Today’s garden share is from my early July sun garden part 3 (see how late I am, it’s August)…
Last time the tour began at our our gate, and the side not showing was shared.
Today I am sharing the side of the garden that is showing on the right.
The tall vine is again Porcelain Berry Vine, a very fast growing vine. I trim it down to 12″ above ground and it fills in full in early July.

Below the vine is a container filled with annuals, Pinta’s, Petunia’s and Sweet Potato Vine. Just right of the container is Delpheniun (blue) and the pink annual Chloeme. There are two pink Hollyhock, one behind the Chloeme not in bloom, the other on the left side of the container has a few pink blooms in front of the window.
The bluish/purple flower is annual Salvia in the front of the border.
Moving left a bit are the ever reseeding Lambsear in the front, pink Phlox are right and another Chloeme on left of the Cherub.
The Phlox are in full bloom, I took the photo yesterday, before our heavy storms last night.
The Phlox are intermixed pink colors. This lighter one with a pink center…
Dark Pink Phlox
A little bit farther down..
The trellis (which needs painting) extend across the whole South side of our house. I don’t have a lot of depth, but I can grow vertically.
Climbing Rose Bush
Behind are Ross are Morning Glories growing up the trellis.
a few Rose booms left, I love the pink Rose against the purple Morning Glory.
There are four climbing roses that grown on the trellis, two are new transplants, a heirloom white/pink one (propagated from a heirloom Rose brush at a recent garage sale I went to) and a new white one. Also a red Rose that’s covered with Morning Glory right now.
There is an old garden saying….
The first year a plant sleeps, second year it creeps and the third year it leaps.
This is so true!
At the foot of the Rose Climber..
a container filled with Ageratum in back and Zinnias in front. I like the chippy-ness of the container, there’s nothing wrong with age!
In front, more Lambsear, this plant propagates so easily.
Down a little bit more…
Behind the container is a large grass, and being 64 years young I can’t think of the name?
Then Chloeme, Phlox, and Lambsear in front.
A Determinate Tomato not having a lot of sun in my garden I have to have grown tomatoes. See the Rose climber, behind, a red climbing Rose I made a transplant of in early Spring.
The flagstone next to it was moved there because we were adding a few sod pieces.
Are a few garden accessories I found many years ago at HL. To me in recent years they don’t carry as much garden stuff as they use to. All my large containers are from HL that you don’t see anymore.
Next to it is a Indeterminate Tomato, I love these because I can grow as a vine on the trellis. The Indeterminate tomato is the large vine on the left.
See the difference between the the two. If you’d like to learn the difference between them check my post on them.
There is another 6-8 feet of sun garden that I use for “holding” beds” till I move the plant to it’s new home, and many herbs.
I used another wicker headboard as a backdrop to a seating area created on the otherside, I’ll share this in another post.
I’ve hope you’ve enjoyed my garden tour, even if it’s a month late.
