Today's photos are from Joe out in Newcastle, Washington (Zone 8b). He says, "I am a King County Master Gardener (6 years) and gardening is my hobby. It helps to take my mind away from chronic pain that I am dealing with from Sjogren's Syndrome and fibromyalgia. It gives me peace while I garden listening to my 80's music on my mp3 player. The Cornus kousa 'Satomi' is my favorite tree in the front yard. It blooms starting in early June and keeps going for a month. Flowers start off a dark pink and fade to white, followed by red berry fruit and the beautiful fall color. In the backyard, the Hamamelis mollis is my favorite. I have grown it on an espalier as I do not have a lot of room. I love the fragrance in the late winter. It blooms for almost a month. My favorite flowers are peonies and hydrangeas. I just planted a few more peonies. They take awhile to establish but once they are happy, I try not to disturb them as peonies do not like to be disturbed. Go Seahawks!!!" Beautiful color, Joe! Now we need to see more of your garden! Keep sending in photos…
