Zippy's new kennel just arrived! Wondering if this the hole through which I am supposed to tie him to the car roof?

What is meant by fall bulbs?
There are bulbs you plant in the fall - for spring bloom. (See the link in profile to win some to plant now!)
And then there are beautiful bulbs that bloom in the fall like these by @kewplantsman
I guess it means both...Which is your favorite? .

I got all the patio plants moved into the porch. Someone has found his new favorite place.

Anyone planting trees this glorious fall? It is a perfect time.
I've been coveting this tree for years.
I sooo want those little white bells.
It is Halesia - one of those trees you've never seen just randomly at the nursery.
An Impossible impulse buy...no this one is special, if I am going to have it, I'm going to have to really hunt.
Do you have anything this special in your garden?

Has anyone ever grown wasabi?
Odds are, if you haven't, you've never had the real thing.
Real wasabi can cost as much as $200/lb and its flavor significantly diminishes if not eaten within 15 min of its preparation.
Are you curious? Me too.
Thats why I want to grow it. Its tricky, so I've researched and written a guide that is new today at pithandvigor.com. 📷cokemomo
I might have a new favorite dahlia... her name is 'akita' from eden bros. @edenbrothers

The chartreuse leaves were so eye catching and beautiful. I wonder if they were sick? Or if this is a feature of this lovely climbing rose?
My Italy trip was such a sensory overload experience. It is only through pictures that can I relish so many details.
Like this mosaic around the fountain at the Doge Palace in Genoa. It is beautiful.
I wonder, does it tell a story?

And here I was feeling all smug about my giant dahlia.
If you want serious dahlia posts, @mccormickcharlie is your guy to follow.

My driveway is over 100 ft long and as I turn into it, this is the focal point I see at the end.
A shining pink beacon at the end of the road.
This dahlia is THAT big.

I have to look up what variety I planted, if you want to know, I'll post in comments as soon as I figure it out.
Someone (a designer, surely) planted a bunch of anemone to line the front walk of my kids high school.
It is thriving and unexpected and beautiful - every time I walk by I think what a great plant choice this was for this place.
Have you seen a municipal planting that was unexpected and so great?
I love hearing ideas for interesting plants used in banal locations.

What is chic in gardening? Or more specifically plants?
Big white hydrangeas make my 'chic plants list' (yes, I'm actually compiling a list). What would you include on a chic plant list?
Let me know, and if I agree I'll make sure to credit you on the final post!

I know as gardeners we aren't supposed to like these guys. But I can't help but find them charming - in an 'I think you are fascinating, but I seriously don't want to touch you' sort of way.
It not just me, they do have a cuteness right?
Heavenly spa garden in Bormio, Italy. I loved the modern furniture, the clean lines and the soft plants with the backdrop of classic architecture and the alps.
I must return... but next time when I can snowboard.
I finally found a spot where these hydrangea thrive. Not too hot, not too dry, not too alkaline (not that anywhere in my garden is anything but acidic!)
The deep dark blue fades beautifully as the flowers come and go.

Anyone know what plant this is?
It is so pretty (I love the color) and quite opportunistic. This is taken from above, it is growing sideways out of a wall (in Italy)
Any Ideas?
I'm no longer in Italy, but still reflecting on such a great trip. One of my favorite places was so unexpected - the Valtellina valley was filled with vineyards, orchards, mountains and plenty of castle ruins with beautiful gardens surrounding them. This was my favorite... with a stunning view over the valley as well. Most definitely a place I want to re-visit.

I keep losing count of how many happy bees 🐝 were swarming over this lavender!
How many do you count?
