    So many nice colors and textures. Love the rock border.

      Ditto on the rock border. If you are going to border with rocks, make them big, noticeable rocks! Its great.

    Blues and yellows are always pleasing. I like the hardy geranium ( Rozanne?) and the hyssop. Thanks for sharing Kimberly.

    Ahhh, Ms. Justice!
    No Butterfly pix?? With the Buffet you set, there's GOT to be clouds of 'em arriving every morning for their break-feast that you've prepared and pampered!!!
    LOVE the syncopation of the Agastache/Fescue photo!! Very pleasing on film and in person, (I'll wager!) Wish I had taken that shot!!!
    Very glad you let us have a peek at your creativity, as it is nicely done!!

    Hi, Kimberly, your last picture esp. is just what the doctor the chartreusy
    evergreens (?) accenting the curve of the planting bed and then complimented by the purply blues (or bluish purple) of the flowers along the pathway.

    Kimberly, your rock border also caught my eye. Nice combinations of blues and purples to highlight the chartreuse greens, whites, yellows and pink. Or maybe it is the others that make the blues & purples sing? Very pretty summer garden that probably looks just as nice in the spring and fall.

    Awesome cool mid-summer garden. Love your color and foliage combinations. I once read somewhere saying that everyone could do a spring garden, it is August that truly tell the difference between man and boy (in a garden sense.) You are truly a man (woman in this case)Thanks for sharing!

    Very pretty repetition of the lovely blue and purple tones throughout your garden, Kimberly! I'm especially fond of the balloon flower for the way it swells up into a balloon and then pops open as a star, and of course, for its gorgeous blue colour. Thanks for sharing.

    Love your color scheme and the wonderful variety of plant shapes and textures. I'm a sucker for purple, especially mixed with chartreuse, so you had me from the start. We have many of the same choices in our beds, so it was fun to see how you had placed them together. Thanks so much for sharing!

    I especially like the large rocks in the first photo.. they really compliment your lovely plantings.
