See how nicely it works with "Carnival de Nice"? These groups by the lake are totally cool. I done good!! (Ouch - just hurt myself - it's really not that easy to pat yourself on the back)
This little white daff is "Thalia" - I thought it would be cute with "Couleur Cardinal" - but the red is almost done and this is just starting - so not a great pairing.
A couple years ago, a neighbor gave me a clump of this columbine. It has spread everywhere, and I love it. It's so delicate looking.
This is my false indigo - just starting to open. I have never taken a good photo of it open, so I'm showing you this! I love this plant - the flowers are great, the leaf color throughout the summer is a great blue-green, the black seed pods are totally cool. Yup, one of my favorites.
Arb sale stuff is all in the ground now. Today I did dahlias and mini glads. Still need to get to containers - and have caladium and begonia root thingies too (are these all corms? tubers? whatever!) It's been really hot and really windy and no rain - so watered for the first time today. I need to get all the gardens weeded and mulched ASAP.
I was really hot when I finished up today, so was thinking seriously of going for my first swim this year - seriously, that is, until I put my feet in the water - still pretty cold in there!
