I returned home on Tuesday after the American Society of Journalists and Authors conference to a landscape of brilliant green and flowering trees and shrubs. I am always amazed how these plants make it through our winters of snow, cold temperatures, and wind.

We visited the Orchid Show at the Chicago Botanic Garden, the perfect morning on a winter day. The displays were gorgeous.

Yesterday I was walking my landscape making plans for 2022. This morning we have four inches of snow. The horses came down for hay. The sun is breaking through.

I have new clients with a large fruit and vegetable garden they would like to integrate into a larger landscape of native plants in the yard and around the house. The garden is a child's wonderland. Their website is www.letsgrowwonder.com.

Late summer is a great time to choose Hydrangeas for your yard since they are blooming now in garden centers and landscapes. As perennials fade, shrubs take the stage. This is why mixed shrub borders with perennials are a successful design choice.

Bill's vegetable garden supplies us with cucumbers, eggplants, cousa squash, and tomatoes. A large asparagus bed provided us with perfect asparagus in the spring and early summer.

I trimmed, replenished soil, and fertilized my pots yesterday. I also updated the arrangement. The excessive heat and heavy rains have been a challenge this summer.

I have been trimming my pots this evening while moving the sprinkler periodically in the gardens. They generally do not need to be watered, especially in June. We are very dry and need rain.

Tips For Removing Weeds From The Garden | Garden Culture Magazine

Most conversations I am having this gardening season with my design clients and other gardeners are about keeping their gardens weed free. This article in Garden Culture Magazine @gardenculture gives us a useful list of actions we can take in the garden to keep the weeds to a minimum. One preventative not mentioned is to plant all bare surfaces. Groundcovers, plants that are happy to grow close to the ground and even under other plants, shade the soil surface.

Tips For Removing Weeds From The Garden | Garden Culture Magazine To celebrate National Weed Your Garden Day, we’ve put together some tips for getting rid of pesky weeds naturally and without breaking your back!

I love this single peony. It is so elegant. This is the best it has ever bloomed. It is white innocence, a Saunders peony given to us by dear friends over 40 years ago.

After our last snowfall just as the temperatures started to rise, I took photos in the garden. It was warm enough to use the camera phone. The peaceful scene of snow and trees gives winter a reason to return each year.

This year I have been meeting with clients in their yards to discuss creating garden designs. I have had Zoom meeting to review concepts and present drawings. I have also been doing consultations which leave home owners with the information they need to make their own plans for their gardens. These gardeners are interested in using native plants in their landscapes. The winter is a great time to plan. Here are a few plant combinations.
