Look at the texture of this unbelievably beautiful eryngium planum. The color combo in the below photo with the Euphorbia Palustris is stunning! Lordy!
I have been lusting after Martagon Lilies lately and I just got Lily bulb - L. martagon x 'Claude Shride' and Lily Bulb - L. martagon x 'Orange Marmalade' from B & D Lilies at lilybulb.com all for my little self! YIPPEE!!! These plants in Victoria were amazing! The white one was super white!
I love the combination above with the Elderberry - it really picks up the stem color in the Martagon.......clever!
OK that's it.....just a few photos to share. Have a great day!

Today Miss Barbara and Miss Susan went to Sebright Hostas between Woodburn and Salem. You cannot imagine how many lovely plants there were. I bought more than my fair share. For some reason, the picture of the Captain Kirk hosta got turned upside down - I did not love the hosta, but I did love the name.
The icing on the cake of my day though were the 2 cypripedium or lady slipper orchids that they had there waiting for me. Do you have any idea how difficult these are to find???? I have literally been looking for 2 years so needles to day, I am overjoyed!!! Yippee!!!! Now if I can get my grubby little paws on a few more martagon lilies.........anyone know where I can get a few....red please!
