My garden girl, kennelworth ivy and valarian

My garden girl fountain. She wears a vine hat that I bought at a garage sale. Behind to left is a perennial valarian plant which has a beautiful fragrance. The root is used for sleep disorders and does not smell nice like the blossom. After it's done blooming I dead head the blossom which can grow as tall as 7 feet. I look forward to this every summer.
A nice place to have lunch al fresco - this spot is very private too.
Bought this stand at a garage sale just for this corner. The plant in the top pot and bottom pot is a kennelworth ivy, it loves it in sun or shade, pots or in the ground. We enjoy sitting here and observing the rest of the yarden. I love Non stop begonias. Here we treat them as an annual, starting over next year with a new plant.
