Wednesday, June 14th, I took some photos of our garden, part in sun and part in shade, all of it with something to catch the eye. We'll start in the upper west corner and work our way around some of the best parts.
There are chickadees, raising a second family, in that church bird house.
The old English roses are beginning to bloom.
The view from the story chair.The back border, under the fir trees, is green on green.
The old raspberry patch has been taken over by self sown fox gloves. One more year of fallow before we plant raspberries here again.
Here is where we have planted the new hostas and some of the companion plants.
The wisteria is all done blooming, and now the green foliage will provide shade for the deck.
We crossed over the front of the house to the side gate that closes off the back yard from the driveway. The golden hop has almost engulfed the wall.
In a hot pocket by the greenhouse the tomatoes are taking off. The greenhouse is now empty.
Columbine plant themselves anywhere, even in the gravel.
The patio is now soaking wet, after a full day of rain on Thursday, but I look forward to being back out here for lunch soon.
Our collection of tender succulents and agave keeps growing.
And Tom's brugmansia, while cut way back, is wanting to become a tree. It has already bloomed once and has its next set of buds forming.
It will soon officially be summer. We're ready!
