Our Pittsburgh Garden– Stalking the Day Lily

A lot of people don’t like day lilies because they grow wild by the road side. I really like them though and over the years we have planted many different colors. The trick is thinning them out and controlling them.

This yellow one is the first we planted in this Pittsburgh garden. This year we will probably add the dark blue or purple variety for next year’s photo shoot. I like this shot. It is unconventional and gives you the felling that this day lily is being stalked,

Our Pittsburgh Garden–Bleeding Heart

The first year we returned to Pittsburgh we planted Bleeding Heart. It has always been a favorited of ours. In our mountain garden we had a ugh specimen. It reminds me of an upside down version of the wild flower Dutchmen’s Britches. This one has grown significantly in three years and is now the size of a small shrubbery.

Azalea Time in Pittsburgh

Spring came late to Pittsburgh this year. When you travel through Pittsburg the first sign of Spring are the blooming forsythia bushes. That happened weeks ago. You know when Spring is really here when you see the bright splashes of color from blooming azaleas.

As i walked my dog through Regent Square the least couple of weeks I noticed azaleas loaded with buds but not a single bloom. Then this weekend, boom Azaleas everywhere. Spring is officially here. Carry on.

Windows on Market Square

A few weeks ago I published The Birdman of Pittsburgh which was taken in the 1970″s. The picture received a few comments and people asked me where that picture was taken in relationship to the current Market Square.

I am not sure but think I was probably standing in what is now part of PPG Place. I believe I was standing off 4th Avenue near Stanwix. The windows and reflections from PPG Place are truly amazing.

Jason Gamrath at The Phipps Conservatory Part 3

This summer is special at the Phipps Conservatory because there is a special exhibition of the fine art glass sculptures of Jason Gamrath.There are always a few glass sculptures in the eight rooms of the conservatory but this year the exhibition adds over 80 works from the brilliant young artist. Each room is dramatically changed by the addition of his artwork. The show is not to be missed and runs throughout the summer. This is my last post on this great exhibit, if you miss it, you can’t say you weren’t warned.
