Sunny Border on Friday

 From the sidewalk this is the view of the Sunny Border to the right of the house. There are several things I'd like to highlight for you.
The sea holly is really taking off this year. Last year it must have been settling in, because it just sat there all summer - never grew an inch. This year it promises to look a lot more like the pictures and description I read in the catalog.
It's already taller than the knockout rose.
The knockout roses are blooming all over. This is the redder one near the street.
This is the lighter pink - there are two on either side of the Italian Cypress.
the mandevilla vines are freshly planted, trussed up, aimed toward the framework, and over-dressed with black-cow. On your mark, get set, go!
This hosta is near the shady back part of the border. This area is under the magnolia tree branches and is shaded most of the day. Seems happy.
 Here is the left side of the entrance into the White Garden. From bottom to top are: the white peony, the Camellia - man sized, and in the planter guara, which Darla says will need to be cut back by mid-Summer - i believe her. Last year it was 5 ft tall easily.
I hope you guys have a great weekend - and thanks for stopping by.
