First Post - Introduction

This is my first attempt at blogging, so I expect a few 'trial & error' moments. I would like to keep an online record of my zone 3 garden, for reference and to watch it change and develop. Enjoy!

This beautiful daylily is Hemerocallis 'Bonanza'. The blooms are over 5 inches across, and very showy.

I've always been a fan of purple leaves, and the Crimson King Norway Maple is one of my favorites.

I really like the way my Purpleleaf Sancherry (Prunus x cistena) looks in this picture, it is still young, but growing nicely.


  1. Hi Rebecca, it's great to see that you have a blog now. It will be fun to see what is growing in your garden.

    One tall perennial I have with purple foliage is a Cimicifuaga racemosa 'Atropurpurea', which has purple tinges to the leaves.

  2. Hi Northern Shade, thanks so much for stopping by. I hadn't realized there was a whole world of gardening blogs until I stumbled upon yours while looking for information on the Blizzard Mockorange. Thanks for the inspiration and the racemosa suggestion. :)
