Okay, I'm beginning to see the problem with doing a garden blog. When you actually have time to blog, there is nothing happening in the garden - and when the garden is going full steam ahead, you are BUSY!
If the wind dies down a little tomorrow, I'll have to try and get more photos - but have False Solomon's Seal, Solomon's Seal, Jack-in-the-Pulpit, centaurea (above - mountain bluet), Johnson Blue geranium, false indigo, and a handful of other things blooming. The tall bearded iris is almost ready to pop open and the peony buds are showing color. Fun!
I have 2 gardens left to weed and mulch - and then I can start over again. I noticed on my little walk-around today that I have trees and weeds growing in the "done" gardens already.
Went and bought potting soil today - so there is hope that I'll get containers at least started sometime soon - not sure why that's so hard to get at this year.
Just finished "Obsession" by Karen Robards - I like her books - kind of lightweight, but good. I honestly didn't know the punchline on this one until I got there - love when that happens! It had a waiting list, so dropped it off today after I finished it and picked up 3 more. Perfect summer day for me: walk dogs and garden in the morning while it's cool, swim once the water warms up, and sit in the shade with a good book in the heat of the day - heaven!
