Don't be fooled. Inside this thin coating of sweetness is a fiery core of total insanity.

Flowers From a Garden Tour

While many of the gardens on the Woodinville Garden Tour had spectacular beds with interesting mature specimens of shrubs and trees, there were also quite a few lovely flowers in evidence.

Coreopsis with quilled petals, possibly 'Zamfir'



Purple Cotinus/smoke tree showing off the flowers that give it its common name

Gorgeous flower bed

Same bed, from the opposite direction (I find it helpful to often turn around and look back at where I've been, gives things a new perspective)

Bicolor sweetpea

Although it is situated like a climbing hydrangea, against the house, I think this is Hydrangea aspera 'Macrophylla'.

Roses (Sorry, I didn't take note of the names)

A couple of the gardens had a similar lush carpet of blue star creeper



Calla Lily

Eremurus/Foxtail Lily

This is my last post about the Woodinville Garden Tour. Back to posting about my own garden, with a short break for posts about the Seattle Garden Bloggers' Fling this coming weekend. Garden bloggers from all over the country are descending on Seattle for some fun activities!
