Charming Gardeners

" Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom." - Marcel Proust
I believe that everyone is a gardener, encouraging blooms throughout their life.
This Trumpet Vine is covered in small tulip type orange flowers the entire summer.
The Japanese Anenome is a late summer beauty, just starting to show off its poppylike flowers.  It does best in semi shade, and will continue blooming through late October.
This Centennial Hops is beginning to fill out with lime green cones.  The hops plant is a vigorous growing perennial, sometimes growing 8-10" in one day.  Hops are actually the female flower cone of the hops plant.
In afternoon sunlight, this little peach colored Tea Rose really stands out against a backdrop of Northern Sea Oats.
