Ignore the weeds still living here. The garden angel used to be taller but her stick broke.
My beloved Lupines are blossoming. I lost a couple to the brutal winter, but there are lots of babies who I hope will make it through to next year. (they don't blossom the first year)
The first Columbine blossoms. Apparently those baby spiders were here....
...And speaking of baby spiders, I found another new hatch on this Salvia plant. If any of them hang around long enough, I'll try to get a picture when they get bigger. I can't remember if they are the crab spiders, or a kind of orb weaver. Stay tuned.
These irises just showed up one year in the wild part of the area around the garden. I fear they may be this invasive species. But they are so pretty!
This is a form of sedum, I believe. But it behaves differently than most. Rather than just spreading out to form a nice ground cover, it self seeds, making lots of little plants. They blossom earlier, too.
Such pretty little flowers!
Oh, yeah- remember the "alien plant life"?
The blossoms finally opened up so I could get a picture.
It has taken me forever to get this post finished to this point, so I will save the other part of the garden story for next time.
My green thought is to leave the grass clippings where they fall. They improve your soil over time!
I am grateful for:
My aunt's doctors and nurses are all very patient with my questions
I have flowers on my desk- picked from the garden!
New kittens to cuddle!!
