So you want photos?

A photo essay of my garden throughout the year sounds like a plan. Thanks Rajat!

Pennisetum alopecuroides Pennisetum alopecuroides blooms in August, with bottlebrush-like flowers. A mass planting of them is gorgeous, as you can see by the photo. Unfortunately this picture was not taken in my garden. The only thing I have even been able to mass plant is periwinkle, pachysandra and of course lawn. The rest of the time I seem to have a need to keep trying new plants.

Stipa brachytricha This is one of the less well-known ornamental grasses, Stipa brachytricha (aka Calamagrostis brachytricha, common name - Korean feather reed grass). It isn't obvious in the garden until September, when the flower stalks erupt. This picture shows it backlit by the sun.
