It’s what’s blooming time! I am enjoying my garden a lot this year. It’s nice just to stand out and admire it I have to wonder what people think seeing me out there with my camera all the time. I was out the other night taking some shots and a woman stopped and told me that she loves to walk by my garden every day and look at it. How sweet is that? I do this garden for me, but I am glad that other people enjoy it as well.
The walkway is making progress. Or rather, John is making progress on the walkway. Once it is done we will fill in with sand.
It’s a mold that you pour the concrete into. One bag of cement per mold (it takes 2 molds to go across this sidewalk). I am not totally crazy about it, but it is much better than the broken concrete that was there. Now that weather is cooperating, it should go faster.
My 100-pound rose bush has more blooms on it. The mid summer flush is always small, but welcome!
I have a few blooms on the perennial bachelor buttons, too!
The other kind hasn’t done anything yet. Not sure why this one is blooming and the other color one is not, but then I wasn’t expecting anything this year from them.
The new rose bush is growing pretty fast!
I love the color.
I am still very taken with these lilies!
They are pretty tall, too, about 3 feet or so.
My butterfly bush is now starting to bloom:
It’s a big boy at 5 feet tall! Now that it is flowering, my friend the sphinx moth is back.
Of course, it probably isn’t the same one from last year, but we can pretend.
I also have another coneflower. This is Green Jewel:
And how is this for a lovely looking plant?
This is Pixie’s catnip. It was outside and one of the neighborhood cats knocked it off the porch, ate most of it and rolled on it enough to flatten the stems! I thought it was a goner. I repotted it and am now getting new growth. I haven’t been able to harvest any for Pixie because of that. Not quite sure what to do with this. Can’t have it inside because Pixie will go insane over it. Can’t have it outside because the neighborhood cats get it.
I have a dozen more pictures, but guess I had better stop there
