Thinking About : The Garden

Astilbe I've never grown Astible in the garden. Its flowers are so feathery and the foliage is reminiscent of ferns. It comes in array of colors and sizes and prefers the shade.

I'll share a recap of the funner side of the trip in a coming post because the other 60 hours in Mexico were pretty amazing.
