Today’s photos are from Jeanne Cronce in Port Orchard, Washington. We’ve visited Jeanne’s garden LOTS (refresh your memory HERE, HERE, and HERE), but I’m amazed at how, no matter how many times she send in photos, we always see something new! Exactly how big IS your garden, Jeanne?? Anyway, enjoy, and check out more info in the captions.
Keep sending in photos of your gardens, everyone!

No doubt about it, Jeanne, you continue to amaze, astound and inspire me with your garden pictures. I officially crown you Queen of the Bargain Hunters...that is a truly awesome fountain and to think you got it for a cool $50...it doesn't get any better! And it's totally appropriate that you should be deemed royalty since purple is the color associated with that status and you have all that wonderful purple happening throughout your garden. Speaking of which, your hydrangea tucked under the willow is gorgeous...do you do any soil amending to get the flowers that color?
I would find all sorts of reasons to go back and forth to the car park just to walk that path...ha, who am I kidding...who needs an excuse to enjoy an admiring garden stroll?! Love your choice of the upright blue evergreens for the focal element in those pots. Would you share what that are and will they at some point outgrow their container home and be planted in the ground?
Hey..I think Iam getting the swing of It..using the smart phone...about the hydrangea under the willow..well I haven't used anything on it except some fish compost . I do use ammonia Sulph. sometimes to get the blue in some of the other ones. But this particular one has always stayed this color. It has been planted in an old pile of extra sod and dirt I had thrown there. Who knows with hydrangeas, right.....I enjoy them so.
Jeanne, your garden seems endless and park sized. I can imagine that you putter around in sections of it daily. Such a source of joy to be in it everyday. I so love your fun and colorful garden ideas and the fact that you source from Craigslist. Who doesn't love Craigslist? I especially love Seattle Craigslist and have found some pretty good bargains myself.
Not sure how it's been in Seattle but we've had a humid summer here in Vancouver which is not typical, but your garden remains quite lush and colorful. What's your secret?
Our weather has been so beautiful this summer. Things are starting to dry out though. I water a lot and am really hoping for a rainy season this fall and winter. We count on the snow pack for our water table. Iam out in the gardens every day usually. But the days when I have to do other things I miss being outside. I almost feel like an animal who lives in the dirt!...ha ha...we have five acres and there is at least half of it in gardens. I have to stop sometime! It always seems I find a new tree or shrub I can't live without. But I can't have them all. It's totally an addiction! So u live up in Vancouver bc...? It's beautiful up there. We'll bye for now..
So full and colorful. It's jam-packed with plant goodies. I so wish I could grow a Gunnera in my garden - I'm envious. I really like the variety of plants. That's my kind of gardening.
So many great combinations, color and astounding foliage! Thanks for giving us another tour. that crazy painted tree is the perfect backdrop for those sunflowers.
I have chronic garden envy, Jeanne. That is gorgeous !!!!!!
Sorry I can't figure out on my smart phone how 2 reply individually so I have to dois...first off for perenniallycrazy...I really have no secret to growin/ other than I remember taking pictures early in the morning when the lighting is best and before the sun hits everything and washes with sun. To meander 1 ...those two plants in the pots are "Moonglow juniper". I so enjoy the blue color! Iam not sure how big they will get in pots but for sure they will find a place somewhere in the gardens later on. The info on them says they get to 15ft. Tall by 8 ft wide! Wasn't that an excellent find on the fountain! I couldn't believe it. And my husband was willing to go and get it while knowing the possible work involved to get it and set it up! He is a great guy! Thanks for all the comments to everyone and I hope these photos inspire and renews the joy of getting out there and di/ing in the dirt!
here's to great husbands!!!
Wow Jeanne, I'm going to call your photos the 'wanty' photos. I'm not 'needy' of your flowers and fountain, but I'm certainly 'wanty'! Beautiful combinations and certainly one of the best Craigslist purchases I've seen. The slight green accenting really enhances the detailed figures. Thanks for the views into your garden.....Gotta go now, I'm off to search for Ammi majus on the internet
Hi annek...isn't the ami majuscule a cool plant! It gets to about 4 ft tall but it's so pretty. I had some go to seed so I will see if it will grow next year. Enjoy
Well, with both of you fantastic gardeners singing the praises of ami majuscule, I had to do a google search and find out what the scoop on it is.
I can't quite tell from my reading and looking whether it is old fashioned Queen Ann's Lace or something related?
Well my silly phone typed the name wrong.or was it me? It does have the same look as queen Annes lace but a lot finer texture and it's totally an annual. Take off the letters c- u- l- e on the last word and that's how it's spelled. I can't believe this phone changes my words to what it thinks I mean...wish it would correct my spelling! Hah ha..
Hey meander-girl....I had difficulties trying to differentiate too. But I think that it, indeed, has a finer flower. I'm ready to find out up close and personally!
Hi green genes! I just bought some seeds and read that it reseeds easily. Good and bad news, I guess.. but it's so pretty!!
I love the lush greenness of your garden Jeanne. The islands of trees and shrubs and your selections of plants. After living in Oregon and Washington and now in Nevada I am drooling over your garden. I can tell you love plants and your garden. Awesome! Thanks for sharing with us. :)
WOW !! Jeanne - can that word be used to much? Oh well, it is all SO beautiful. I know we will have to visit your gardens again soon to truly enjoy the beauty. Thanks, LS
Hi! I would so enjoy seeing you again! There has bee a few changes since u have been here. We poured a cement area, small of course and I decorated it with rocks. Wish I could send a picture but having trouble with it being too much data? Anyway let me know a couple of days in advance of stopping by. Bye for now!
Beautiful garden Jeanne. Love all the pathways and secret gardens. Lots to do on 5 acres. I think I have a type of Ammi Majus but it has a dark red brown leaf. I love it as it spreads easily but is not invasive.
Oh! That sounds very nice!
