Photo Dump

I'm still sick, but I got out to look at things and snap a few photos.

I don't know whether this is a weed or not, but I think it's pretty. Can anyone identify it? It's short, maybe six inches tall and grows in clumps.

Some echineachea I planted last year.

A daylily of some kind from my dad's gardens.

Yet another rose popped up! It's such a pretty, delicate pink.

I love the dark purple flowers on this hosta from New Hampshire.

We have strawberries!

Look how much Bobby Peru has grown! (and the weeds, ugh)

A view of the veggie plot. It's hard to see because it's so wispy, but the asparagus is there next to the younger of the summer squash plants. We also have a third asparagus plant poke up its shoot! Just one more to go and we'll have 100% success.

The shade garden has really filled in. Here you can see the scented geranium from my dad's garden which has taken off so well, and the "Pan Am" hosta I got from my friend Gordon in the back. Oh, and some more lupin has bloomed, and there are more foxglove shoots coming up, too!

Another view of the shade garden. The Solomon's Seal (also from Gordon) filled that spot perfectly. The pachysandra has been thriving and looks really pretty!

These are red hot pokers from my cousin Peggy's garden. I just love them! I'm happy to say that she dug one up for me to take home on the 4th of July.

  1. I am having serious envy--the color on that poker is something I would LOVE to have in my garden! (Unfortunately, I never see the orange-y ones offered here, only the red-to-yellow common ones.) And don't even get me started on the lovely lupine...

    That long view of the shade bed is fantastic, btw. So much color and interest there... it's already looking great!
