Last Sunday I visited Duke gardens again! Here is the famous red bridge. The light was too bright yet I managed this photo with help in my editor to compensate.
I have a new computer a macbook pro my first mac! Not exactly found a photoshop replacement, nor do I want to pay the big bucks to buy it again..... My Photoshop CS program is 5 years old and cost something like $600+..
This is a Japanese anemone called Honorine Jobert I looked it up on the net and found that a few local nurseries might have it. I visited the nursery in Carrboro and purchased September Charm. Then I found the Holland Bulb company has Honoring Jobert and ordered 3 plants and another 3 anemones direct from Holland I expect them any day. A great deal 6 plants $21 and free shipping hoping I wasn't scammed.
Several posts back I complained about missing the gingers in bloom. Above is ' Elizabeth' Never seen it before, wow! Below is the hardy White Ginger, it takes a lot of room but the fragrance is wonderful!
Below are buds on our Hellebore niger purchased last spring, 8- 10 buds in all! The nursery in Carrboro also had one plant with buds like these!
We are going on the Orange County art tour today, visited 5-6 studios last weekend, hope to do a posting on some of the cool stuff seen on the art tour.
