I'm pleased and amazed that the mess I keep fooling with actually looks somewhat like a flower garden this year.
I'm enjoying it as much as I can before I leave at the end of the week for the BIG HIKE.
Here is the ajuga and fleeceflower again, at their best.
I also showed you the sandwort with its early leaves. Look what it's doing now!
Here's a nice little treat. This is a miniature Solomon's Seal, and it was a gift from Ester a few years ago. It seems to be really happy here. I'm always pleased when something agrees to grow without a fight.
Across the driveway, I'm struggling to get that bed weeded. I'm fighting for the right to the property with a hill full of biting ants. I'll win, but they aren't going down without a struggle!
This is Veronica. I think I actually bought this one. It will bloom a long time if you keep deadheading it. But I'll be leaving, so I'll just enjoy it this week. I have another one, but I'm not sure what color it is. I had a pink one, but not where this is! Did I move it?
Finally, the iris usually manage to bloom even when neglected and not weeded. I'm glad I get to see them.
