It's Bloomin' Tuesday!

 This week it's all about my 'middle garden' that is in the middle of my back yard.  This was one of my first gardens but it is nothing like the original anymore.
 You can see the ends of the iron crib (remember last week you saw the sides as a trellis)used as a backdrop for the amazing fox glove in the back of this garden.
 I'm not sure how this one stays standing as full as it is.
 I love the dark spots in this one.
 The dark purple spiderwart is beginning to bloom.  This garden is all in purples, pinks, white and some soft yellow.  I don't plant by color anymore, mostly by space.
 This is a view from the back that was supposed to have the 'fence' and then some globe thistle behind it.  Now because of the foxglove going wherever it wants, there is more foxglove after the thistle so I moved the 'fence'.
Last, but definitely not least is this lovely white peony.  Most of them are drooping from the severe storms we're having but this one opened in the branches of a Rose of Sharon tree.
You know the drill, name,permalink and a link on your post.
Happy Bloomin' Tuesday!

I love the fox gloves! I found some in the front of a bed that are getting overwhelmed by orange daylilies. They're next on my list for cleaning up.

I am amazed by your foxglove. I have tried and tried to grow it, but it doesn't like this part of the world, I guess. I have never been able to get it settled in the garden. Yours are beautiful, Jean! Your "middle garden" is lovely! ~~Rhonda
