Do you ever order from garden catalogs? I purchased what was called a “hummingbird garden” – it was to be filled with all sorts of red plants to attract the hummingbirds. I don’t know what happened, but instead of the usual red bee balm, I received this lovely lavender shade. It’s really pretty, but I planted it with all my other red plants in the back and it doesn’t go. So, I’ll need to move it!
These “Daisy May” daisies that I planted last year came back quite nicely.
The “Cherry Brandy Black Eyed Susans” were also a new addition last year and they are gorgeous this year. If you are wondering how I am keeping track of what I planted and what it was called, I talked about it in this post: Using Evernote and Skitch for Gardening. We just bought 5 new plants that we’ll be adding to the garden, and with Evernote, I’ll be able to record when and where we planted them. Love it!
Every garden needs a few daylilies. Which in no time become more than a few!
All of my plants are loving the regular, steady rain that we have been receiving. Here it is July and I haven’t had to use the sprinklers once. Last year, I started the twice weekly ritual in April, so I am a very happy camper – and so is my Sedum Autumn Joy!
And my lamb’s ear is continuing in it’s quest for world dominance.
What’s in your garden this week?
