Late Spring in the Garden
Knockout Rose "Sunny"
Hydrangea aborescens "Annabelle" and Hydrangea serrata "Miranda" plus Japanese roof Iris and Echinacea purpurea "Evan Saul"
The Hydrangeas are showstoppers this year, in spite of the heat and lack of rain.
I love how tough Daylilies are. They are stunning year after year, no matter the conditions. And they spread, so one can share!
Annabelle Hydrangea and Duncan
Duncan got tired of saying "Cheese," and ended up looking a little funny. Mommy's a bit slow with the camera finger.
The Big Blooms of Annabelle
So long Sweet Peas! You were tasty!
On to some summer beans, I hope.
Echinacea purpurea "Kim's Mop Head"
I've seen honeybees and butterflies frequent these Echinaceas. I'd like to get more, but they're still a little hard to find locally.
Rudbeckia fulgida "Early Bird Gold"
Another tough plant is Rudbeckia. "Early Bird Gold" blooms all summer. It has spread in the last few years, and I need to divide them and give some away. Any takers?
Daylily "Paper Butterfly"
The blooms of "Paper Butterfly" are huge! Just a beautiful daylily.
Dinner with veggies from my garden (sweet peas, new potatoes, carrots, and onions!)
