The Rest of our Walk Along the Path......

 ............About two posts back I told you we would go along the stepping stone path to see the other end of it. So, here we go.......

You can see we head up a little incline in this direction. Up ahead is my huge Agapanthus. It is also called Lily of the Nile. It looks like it is in the big pot in the picture but is in the ground ....

This is a close-up of the plant (spider wort) you see hanging over the path and......

 on the left side is the toad abode and Nome area.

A few steps on is a Louis Philippe rose bush and also.....

Mutabilis rose which has been blooming full enough lately to get a shot of multiple blossoms.

A shot up the other side does not show every thing but it sure shows that chair pad that is supposed to be down on the seat!  I just ran out in light rain to take this picture. I guess I was in a hurry and didn't notice the chair. Hidden by the pot in front is this......

My Gerber daisy.

Looking on ahead in the long shot you saw Peggy Martin on a trellis and above the Tibouchina bush.

This rose has really been showing off lately. 

On around the corner my raised beds come in view.

In this view a couple of sprigs of the Tibouchina in the bottom right. This plant has also been blooming up a storm!

You will notice the stepping stone path has now changed to mini-pine bark.

 I have not shown near all that is along here on the left but, I am going to continue on with this Plumbago bush.

After that is a few Cleome plants - one of my very favorites. This picture is actually looking back the way we came. I have many baby ones of these coming to take over when these big ones age out.

Lower on the ground in the same area is this Coreopsis.

Also on the left is the big sprawling (even after I trimmed it way back) Clair Matin rose. She has grown back so quick and is blooming full right now.

Across from the rose you see my grape tomato plant in a pot with the Knockout rose and some ferns in back.

Looking beyond knockout is the Bridal Wreath Spirea which is fast turning brown. 

This is an earlier picture when it was still white. I love it when it is at its best and wish it could last all summer.There is more to see down the path, however, I don't know about you but I am tired! This post has not gone smoothly and I think it is time to quit! I hope you enjoyed the second part of our path walk and I will see you next time.


  1. Is that Peggy Martin rose the one that was full with buds while I was there? It is so pretty in full bloom.

  2. Yes it is the one. The one up over the black trellis and partly nestled into the bottle brush tree skeleton.

  3. Pretty! Your gardens have to be amazing!

  4. What an inspiring walk, I feel like I just had a walk with you, me and God down the garden path.
