We're into the final str-r-r-r-retch now, folks! Mr Sun is shining on tons of Ubiquitous garden clean-up to do... err, list... this morning. Actually, Mrs Moon was just as bright last nite. :x
Ladling[sp] off with one U-V-W set.

I'm going to suffer withdrawal after the soup ends! It's been an wonderful diversion.
Thanks to all the hosts and creators.
I have a V and 3 Ws. The hosta was a nice surprise. It was a sport I'd separated from Paul's Glory. I planted it in the back of the garden, as I couldn't throw it out. So I was pleasantly surprised when it turned into this blue hosta. Folks on the hosta site identified it for me.
Reen, that's a gorgeous clump of veronica. Do you know which one it is?

Beautiful captures, everyone!
Whatever whichway you post your garden beauties is OK, Laura! ;o}

I've got Vetch and always forget to take its picture. Of course if a Monarch lit on one, cammie would appear a might quicker! Your photography eye just gets lovelier.

Reen, I'm looking for a a lone red Snapdragon among your Vesuvius Campion and don't see one . winklaff Think I have Veronica somewhere....

Marie, I'm a 3-4 year practicing watcher/grower of Hostas and your Wheaton Blue is a spectacular sorprise, alright! Like the White Kiss lily far better than the Easter Lily. ;o}

Loving the U V W's, here are mine.
U for Umbrella Plant also known as Podophyllum peltatum or Mayapple

V for Verbascum This one sprawled over the ground vs standing upright but I still love the clolour.

I have two verbena - first is Verbena hastata
verbena (2).jpg

The other is Verbena bonariensis it self seeds profusely and last year, having an empty space, I allowed it to do so.

For W, I will show what I started doing with my rock walls. Fill the cracks with small plants.

Wanted to post the pic of the one wisteria again, but posted that right after it quit blooming . Was the best year ever for that particular wisteria.
So instead will post a creeping Veronica, and a White Monarda

Was my worst year for Wisteria, and I'm praying my jinx is over. I fed a clematis lots of comfrey tea, which soaked thru the pot into the Wisteria soil. Don't know if that's what did it, but I was so disapointed I could have cried.

The clematis was very happy.

Love the blue of your Creeping Veronica! I just cannot get ground cover to grow well, except for wild buttercup, periwinkle, and catmint, all of which are wild and invasive here, demmit!
