Bean Bed Updates

Long delay for a few reasons. BUT! Here's some new photos from the gardens.

You can sort of see that the Linden has really filled in from early May. Also, all the plants are much larger and several are in bloom.

A closer view. I'd say about half the garden is blooming. We've got a few more that are just about ready to pop, too.

This guy just bloomed today. I'm not sure what he is. I need to check our plan.

The Fleabane is going crazy. They all look incredible.

Start of June Bloom

With the start of June, and hopefully the cold nights behind us, I took some time to catch some of the blooming flowers around the yard...

With this summer being only the second summer in this house, Cathy and I are still unsure as to what is planted in some of the garden beds around the yard. This first picture is of an unexpected guest in the front garden bed just near the front living room window.

Also located in the front yard, the Lilacs are beginning to bloom alongside the Goldflame Spirea.

Moving to the color in the backyard, the Chives we removed from the bean bed are looking full and hearty.

Having a little fun with the camera, I took an angled upward shot of the white and purple Salvia located in the bean bed.

Located behind the garage, some of the Russian Irises are starting to flower with a deep blue violet hue.

Last but not least, the Gaillardia Aristata has opened up displaying its vibrant yellow and red colors.
