    What a strikingly beautiful combination!

  2. Brian Skeys says:

    Lovely combination. Unfortunately, Monardo didn’t like my garden. The Swan neck is One of the most graceful plants.

  3. Cathy says:

    Wonderful! Mine got frazzled, so lovely to see this photo to keep me optimistic about next year! 😉

  4. Cute title and another sweet arrangement, Eliza.

    Not what I was expecting, but very pretty.

  6. Twan says:

    No words needed. Great photograph.

  7. Nice, and a good play on words. 🙂

  8. I agree with Judy lol and it is so pretty how deep is your well?

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thanks, Eunice. Not sure exactly how deep, but probably about 250′ being a ‘newer’ well. We’ve never had an issue with water, but I still conserve in dry summers. Only two beds get soaker hose drinks. The rest are on their own, or I spot water if certain plants look desperate. I’m pretty amazed at the resilience I’m seeing.

  9. What an inventive title and very lovely arrangement! (Made me think of Christmas colors…)

  10. Such soft and colorful beauty. 💜

  11. A great combo. Are Gooseneck controllable?

    What a beautiful combination Eliza! ❤️

  13. Dale says:

    Haha! Love the play on words. Gorgeous bouquet.

  14. Beauty and fun! Who could ask for anything more?

  15. Alice says:

    Christmas colors in August. Do the bees enjoy loosestrife, with all those flowers?

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Yes, the honeybees and bumbles seem the most interested in the loosestrife, not the solitary ones, but as you know, it is the bee balm that is the favored one.

    Hi Eliza. That looks like one of your beautiful vase arrangements – sorely missed this year!! I think we need some vases!!!

  18. sandyjwhite says:

    What a gorgeous combination that makes!

  19. Debbie says:

    This is a striking color combination — maybe I’m partial to red, white, and green?

  20. Absolutely gorgeous, Eliza! ❤️
    (BTW, you got me with the title! 😉 )

  21. That’s an arresting pairing! Lovely healthy specimens. (Both plants are struggling to survive in our garden just now. We seem to have missed the rain again.)

    A lovely combination, Eliza!

    What stunning flowers and arrangement. I love flowers they are a beautiful example of the grandeur of nature between the multitude of colors and the intricate petal design, they are so magical.

    Always the striking clear photo images!

  26. Val Boyko says:

    A delightful combination 💐

  27. Great color combo!

  28. Red and white is a very becoming combination. I bet your your bees, butterflies, and birds like it as well.

  29. Maria says:

  33. That’s a great combo … one you certainly couldn’t get from a florist shop! Your arrangements are always so special.

  34. naturebackin says:

    The title attracted my attention – and the flowers go so well together, they are lovely.

  35. Jane Lurie says:

    A great combo, Eliza. Good for the holidays. 🙂

  36. Beautiful Eliza. How are you. You are coming on to winter and here in Aussie we are coming on to Summer 🙂

    This is awesome ~ the contrast in colors is nice, but the best is how the shapes complement each other, really a cool arrangement.
