Neng....your garden definitely has wow factor. Some of the new dwarf fernleaf bleeding hearts actually do bloom all summer, but they might be too small for your garden.

I have that Coral certainly does bloom a long time. Roses, Lilies and Clematis are some of my favorites too, along with Coral Bells, Peonies, and Daylilies.

You are always so generous Neng. I should probably wait till everything is rearranged and the plants on order are in the ground before any more plants are added, but thank you so much for thinking of me. Maybe once fall is here we can do a plant exchange.

hah, I don't have a garden. I'm taking inspiration from you.

I'd like to see peoples front yard gardens.

The enclosed picture is how I got the house a couple of years ago and I haven't planted a thing since. I don't know what to do to give it curb appeal (aside from a new driveway).

But I did grow scarecrows last Halloween.

If someone wants to give idea's go right ahead. I'm all ears.
