My Impatiens started out really small, since I bought them in flats, but still, they don't seem to be growing like they should.
Isn't it early for Hostas to be blooming?
Or have I just not accepted that it's the middle of June yet?
I bought this yeeeeears ago and the tag said it's a Dwarf Meadow Rue.
I think it had the wrong tag.
You can see how tall it is in the first photo.
Supposedly it's Thalictrum kiusianum.
Here's a shot of the whole south side.
A Clematis that my mom passed on last year is blooming for the first time.
I don't know if the flowers are supposed to be this small, or if it isn't getting enough sun because it's still so low to the ground.
Either way, it's super cute.
Also on that side, the Speedwell is blooming.
This one is Veronica spicata, 'Royal Candles.'
More Spiderwort, that's threatening to take over the world.
Heading back to the back, there's a very rare Homosapien called 'Laney.'
Behind her, the Evening Primrose is solid flowers and literally glowing.
Here's some shots of the front side of that bed.
We've been munching on the first of the Snap Peas.
The giant Hosta is officially giant.
The Lady's Mantle is blooming now.
I bought a Catmint for the first time this year.
I'm kinda loving it.
This one is called Calamintha grandiflora 'Variegata.'
The Knock Out Rose is still bloomin' solid.
I always look forward to this one blooming.
I love this plant.
It's Hebe 'Sapphire' and it was solid flowers when we got home.
Speaking of plants I love, my first Phlox is blooming.
It rates a ten on the olfactory scales.
This rose had buds when we left, so I missed all but one of the blooms.
It's on its way out, but there's lots more comin'.
And, it's one of the only ones in the yard that isn't completely naked from blackspot.
I don't know what the heck is goin' on with this one.
The new growth shot up to about 6 feet.
When it's done blooming, I'll whack it back to the ground.
This is one of my new babies.
I've grown it before, but it wasn't super hardy, so I bought it this year as an annual.
I figure it will be a happy surprise if it makes it.
Variegated Sage 'Tricolor.'
This is another new baby.
I couldn't help myself.
I didn't have any pink Hydrangeas, and this one has the sweetest baby pink flowers.
The tag said it's a variety that stays small, only 3 feet tall and wide, or so.
I'd give ya the name, but it's another one that's missing. :(
Here's proof that these suckers will grow anywhere.
Perennial Bachelor Button.
