Sorry for missing last week. Totally forgot all about it until it was too late.
It has been hot and dry here again. It's hard to keep up with the garden when it's so hot but the sun did bring out some blooms!
I have been working in the shade garden when ever I can. One area had been taken over by buttercups so I tried to dig them all out. I found 2 small astilbe! This pink one is lovely this year. I've moved the rest so hopefully they will be better next year. I think they were getting too much sun.
The pink and white cone flowers in the middle garden are going strong. The taller pinks on the other side are false mallow, party girl.
The bee balm along the back of the wild garden are in full bloom. I have red and dark pink here and a shorter, light pink in a couple other areas. I love the bee balm and so do the humming birds.
The orange double cone flowers are blooming along the side walk garden. There is some pink phlox opening up too.
I've been waiting and watching these allium, probably because they are right out front. They have pointy heads right now. LOL!
This wicker sleigh filled with sweet potato vine and pink and green petunias sets in front by the door. I've been looking for these petunias for a couple years and finally got lucky. The thyme under it is almost a bush!
The yellow loosestrife is almost gone in the wild garden but the pink loosestrife and cone flowers are just getting started.
