So pretty, chico!!! I always love your garden pics

The Virginia Creeper looks beautiful on that spruce, but how do you keep it from strangling the tree?! Is there some trick to it? It tends to get out of hand here, so we end up just pulling it when we see it.

Your mystery plant in the first post looks like a spiderwort (Tradescantia spp)! I love spiderwort I'll take it if you decide to pull it up!

What's the pink-flowered shrub that starts off your third post? Looks like something the hummingbirds would love!

Thank's,Hazel I really don't know what that bush is called,I've had it for about 10yrs.Maybe I have hummers going there,but I am not often in the front-yard.

As for the Virginia creeper,I don't think it damages the Blue Spruce,it's doing fine,but we pull the creeper down a couple of times in the summer.
