Salvia and A Dog In My Garden

I have to shut Strider out of my Garden to water the plants.  He goes nuts trying to play in the spray from the hose.  He will jump into my flowers and flower pots to get to the water.  He is in big trouble right now from doing just that.
I could never pass up a plant called "Victorian" anything.  I love blue.
Salvia makes great garden fillers.  It's wonderful.

My pink Salvia.  
It has replanted itself.  A good thing.  I love the pink and it grows  best in my garden.
Funny little Bumble Bee came along as I was taking pictures. It is funny to watch them.  They weigh more than the flowers and you can watch as one flower after another falls off the plant until they find a flower which can support their weight.  Then they feast.

I am going to have to prune this pink Salvia.  I have never seen it so big and it is squashing my poor yellow rose in the middle.

This red Salvia fell over from  the weight of the rain collecting on the leaves.  It just started growing toward the sun before I ever found a steak to put it back upright.

I am going to hook up with Outdoor Wednesday today. Join me.


  1. Your garden is beautiful. I can see Strider is loving the water now.

  2. Beautiful garden. I just love all your flowers. And your dog is adorable, too. :)

  3. Lovely walk about in your garden thanks for taking us along -- your dog wishes he was tagging along too. so sweet..

    Happy Outdoor Wednesday,


  4. Love the plants growing over and round the archway in the first photo - all framing that very sorrowful face peering at you! That would make your heart melt! And love the variety of your flowers!

  5. I love your garden. It looks so pretty against that fence. And the arbor in the dog photo is gorgeous.
