I had to take a few pictures of the Tina rose up in the yard first, though.
As is typical, it's covered in black spot right now.
It'll loose all its leaves, then come back healthy for the rest of the summer.
She blooms her little heart out, in spite of it.
Right outside the fence, the Snow In Summer has started to bloom.
This poor Campion was buried under the Rosemary, so I dug it last week and moved it to the fence section.
This is Lychnis viscaria Passion, also called German Catchfly.
I put it in two years ago and it didn't do a single thing last year.
He's quite happy right now.
Here's a shot of the parking strip from inside the fence.
The 'Double Bloody Mary' Geum has burst into bloom.
It's completely redeeming itself from the pathetic performance it put on after buying it last year.
Next to it, another plant that I bought two years ago, is attempting to convince me not to yank it.
Golden Nugget Sun Rose, aka, Helianthemum x nummularium 'Golden Nugget.'
The volunteer Spiderwort is blooming next to the 'Moonraker' Phygelius.
I got a piece of this iris from my sister's old house before she moved out three years ago.
I love it.
The variegated iris is in full bloom down at the other end.
The Amsonia 'Blue Ice', that I bought off the clearance rack at the end of summer last year, is just starting to show color.
And last, another one of my fall, Winco, $2 bulb box purchases.
Allium 'Purple Sensation.'
Love, love, love.
And that's it for down there this week.
The Dad got me pink lilies for Mother's Day that I need to get out and plant, but it's been raining and cold.
I also got some veggie starts from a girlfriend, and from a neighborhood plant swap, but I did manage to get those things planted before the shift in weather.
I'll have to do an updated driveway post soon.
Until next time...
