Willamette Valley Flower Gardening

Mr. Monkey's Favorite Flower - Delphinium
My Favorite Peonie
While one of the benefits of life in the Willamette Valley is having your own garden (as proclaimed to us this past weekend by family from the Bay Area and former residents of the Friendly St. neighborhood - thanks for the reminder of what I'd forgotten) my great joy is all of our wonderful flowers. We've had a master plan provided to us in a work trade between Mr. Monkey (see Back to the Roots) and Landscape Designer and Eugene Weekly contributor Rachel Foster. Scroll down to the very end of this post for a sense of the full transformation of the front yard over the last several years and click here for an earlier post circa 2008.

Transplanted Hydrangea from the backyard. It didn't bloom at all last year.

Dahlia.  My white dahlia just opened its first flower. The reds have been going for about a month now.
