Annie in Austin

Wow, it looks lovely now - I miss astilbe. I hope you post another photo when the big leaves send this area into tropical mode.

My husband & I grew up in a formerly swampy area in Illinois. The sump pumps ran all the time, but no one ever seemed to do more than complain about how hard it was to mow that part of the lawn. What a lost opportunity! I wish our parents would have tried something wonderful like your sump garden.

Your sump garden is just beautiful! I love the contrasts in foliage, and the nice effect of the pink astilbe plumes and the reddish fringed loosestrife foliage. Like the first commenter, I wish that my parents had done something similar at our house near our sump pump.


Your flowers are so beautiful. I hope you post more!
