Today's photos are from Sue Strong in Arkansas. She says, "I sent the first pictures of my northwestern Arkansas gardens last fall when they were 2½ years old (refresh your memory HERE and HERE). They have matured significantly in the past year, with plants growing taller and filling out. I am learning more about what grows where best, as well as what has no interest in cooperating! I had time last winter (it was a very long, cold winter) to refurbish an arbor with a swing that I purchased at an estate sale for $85! It is a wonderful addition to the gardens and the perfect place to relax, when I have time to relax. In spring clematis ‘Fuji Masume’ grows on the fence behind it and in late summer the arbor is covered by sweet autumn clematis. I also had time this year to add vintage tools, bird houses, and other décor to the gardens for added interest and whimsy. My garden was featured on the Bella Vista Garden Club Garden Walk in June and it was great fun to share the rewards of my labor with other gardening enthusiasts." Wow, Sue, your garden is looking lusher than ever! That arbor and swing fit into that border perfectly and look lovely. And I'm obsessed with that combo with the begonias in the second-to-last photo. Thanks so much for the update and keep 'em coming!
