    Everything looks so lush. I’m expecting great things around here. It rained enough to fill the pool to the top of the skimmer. Yea! It’s perfect timing to make the daylilies rebloom.

    Those are some great vignettes of green! It’s always nice to see the variety you can get…I think the second picture shows some nice variety. But I like the last one for it’s “structure”.

    Thank you Dustin. I’m glad you enjoyed my green day. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I guess your garden will be pretty lush after all the rain Mother Nature. Looking forward to seeing another flush of your daylillies.

    I’m glad you liked the texture and shades of green Mom. That was the effect I was trying to achieve, and so far I’m happy with it.

    Thanks Chris. I almost titled the post Some vignettes. lol I’m glad you liked my variety of texture and color, and I am partial to the garden in the last photo myself. I like the structure and symmetry. With only 4 types of plants in this bed it keeps it almost formal.

    P.G. Green is my favorite color. I love your “green” photos. They remind me of early spring when everything is new and fresh and cooler.

    Thanks Linda. I do love the look of foliage, especially when it is lush, we got 5 days of rainfall while you were gone, so everything has recovered from the short drought and high heat for now. I hope you get some rain soon.

    What great gardens! It just shows that green can be enough color. Makes me want to get my garden as full as yours.

    Love all the greens! Colorful flowers are not the only beauty in the garden.

    I agree Jean. We have flowers for such a short time sometimes, it is nice to have something that is beautiful on its own.

    Green is “my” color, no matter what’s in style or in fashion. I’m always looking for green in anything.

    Great green pictures!

    Thank you Carol. I am crazy about foliage because of the variety you get with texture, shape, and color. Thanks for visiting.

    Ooh, nice, I like your foliage, too. Are those big tropical-looking things cannas, or something else?

    Thanks PB. I am a big fan of foliage myself. Yes the burgundy leaves with green centers are cannas. They come back every year and multiply like bunnies in my garden. ๐Ÿ™‚ But I love their color so I let a few stay.

    Wow, those are some huge Cannas! I thought they were Bananas. Your tapestry of green is quite delightful.
