I have lots of photos of individual plants flowering, and sections of the garden, but found it hard to capture an overall shot. I wound up setting up a large step-ladder in the middle of the backyard and shooting the main perennial beds that way. This is actually two shots (combined on the computer) to show most of this garden area.
Out of sight to the back left (behind a rail fence) is an area which used to be a veggie garden. It is now sown with various milkweeds which can be used for caterpillar food (when they mature in a few years). It is a slow process growing milkweed from seed. The little white wire rack to the right protects some swamp milkweed seedlings from being trampled by our cat or visiting raccoons. There is a little goldfish pond in the grove of sumac and other shrubs on the right hand side.
We have the usual assortment of perennials, that allow for an ever changing transition of bloom through the seasons. This includes; iris (siberian and bearded), peonies, phlox, daisies, coneflowers, hardy geraniums and several different perennial sages. Lately we have added several eupatoriums such as Joe-Pye weed, Boneset, Chocolate and dwarf Joe-Pye.
