Today’s photo is from Gail Gee in Fulton, Maryland. She says, “This area of my garden is planted in all cool colors– pinks, blues, and silvers. The bed is heavily planted with May-blooming peonies and late June- and July-blooming daylilies and phloxes. The path in this border is approximately 80 feet long. I divided the bed into smaller planting bays, since I found myself walking thru the border too quickly. Since the garden is relatively young, I was lacking height in the area. I also wanted to add something that would bloom in June and would not require replacing the existing plantings. Adding this simple arch with a ‘Blushing Lucy’ rose has accomplished everything that I wanted.” Thanks, Gail, for sharing your garden with us!
