I said funny flower, but maybe it's funny flowers -- these baby's breath got tangled under the nasturtium flower.... Things have been pretty busy lately at least as far as work and other things go. Today is a nice Saturday...a little cooler than it has been. If the wind ever dies down down it will be perfect.
I can't summarize all the things going on in the garden since last time, so I will just do a walk through of what the highlights are now...
These rose-mallow flowers have started to bloom. They are so pretty and have an interesting star in the spaces at the base of the petals.
Not quite so showy, the potatoes have flowers...I suppose that must be a good thing.
I just love this clump of asiatic lilies...it is so tall, I almost think I should move it further back in the bed when fall comes (to allow some shorter plants a better display). However, it is doing so well I hesitate to change the conditions.
Here's a close-up of one of the blooms.
A shot of the purple-blue flowers in a barrel...I have procrastinated looking them up in a book still. (Update: Okay I think it's a purple tansy.)
Other developments...the Black-eyed Susans have started to flower.
