@earwig
I like the rock wall you have going. I like rock gardens in general.

Do you have more, or better pics to share that you can maybe toss in a new topic to give me some inspiration?

Almost at the end of the soup. I will have to do like Laura did, post my V then W.

Northpine , I love your Blue Hosta, blue is my favorite color in the garden.
Your succulent wreath is very pretty. I made one a while ago then gave it to a friend.
Guess I'll have to make another one.

Betty your Bonariensis is amazing, I must start it again . Mine never re-seeds like yours.

Liz, wish I could grow Wisteria. I tried several yrs ago but it didn'r survive.

OK her are some of my Vs

I have to include my Ville de Lyon Clemmie - she is gorgeous. I thought she had disappeared and then she was back! She appears to be alive now, I saw signs of buds coming this afternoon.

Betty, never in Soup till now have I seen an Umbrella Plant displaying how it holds up in the rain! ;o} Verbena growing in wild abandon is a heavenly sight, and a vertical rock garden with plants for chinks is far out! Excellent idea!

Thanks encore en fois for the winsome Wallflowers, Tante!! Your dear Welcome Back! sign is just precious. If I ever live in a house. preferably log cabin, with a verandah, Wisteria will be a must-have. Gorgeous cluster there!

Dan, like Liz, I'm ogling your creeping Veronica. A few years back I bought a small pot of Sweet Woodruff hoping it would spread like wildfire... I mean wildflowers... in the shade of 2 tall Rose of Sharons (Roses of Sharon?) but thinking I should've planted it beneath evergreens for continuous shade. Dividing and relocating at top of tomorrow's garden jobs.... Ooops. Sorta daydreamed off for a spell. ;o}

I'm assuming White Feather is a Hosta, Puff? Whether or not, it would pair stunningly with Marie's Wheaton Blue!

Abother great clump of Veronica for the Soup! Your collections of fleurs are amazing, Clara. Naturally, my eye wandered to your Veggie Garden first. haha Love the Waterlily and exiting frog!

Winnipeggy is truly name of that profusion of Lilies, Lyn? And does Smitty know of its existence? harhar Unknown Daylily looks like peach sherbet.

Your Prince George back garden looks so inviting, Heidi! Ville de Lyon Clemmie is indeed a gorgeous specimen. And does Smitty know about your Winnipeg Parks Rose? If not, she will very soon! ;o}

I can see it is time to go clematis shopping by the photos of them in this thread.

I am not starting a new topic as I am unsure of what you want a better pic of. If you check Garden Projects there is a already discussion and photos of rock gardens there.
As for my rock walls, I just started last fall filling in the cracks so I only have that and one other small area planted.

Mare,

Indeed, "White feather" is a white leaf Hosta from Vessey Seeds. Later on in the season it changes to light green.

Just one "V" for the soup.

Viburnum opulus 'Sterile':

Bloom time ~ June
After a rain, the flowers are so heavy with water, the branches droop to the ground but then stand up again once dried off. Spectacular specimen tree.
