|Monarda - just starting to bloom. Variety Raspberry Wine.|
Since we had a little hail last night and they are threatening us with hail again I thought I would put up some pictures of the flowers in bloom right now. They don't look quite as nice after a good hail storm with high winds...
|An Oxalis that I had in the fairy garden last year. The only plant|
that lived over the winter. Now it is too big for the fairy garden so it has it's own pot.
|Hollyhocks from plants from the Clifford Post Office.|
They are biennials and they are taking over the garden.
|Self seeding morning glories and Rudbeckia Hirta, another self seeder. |
This year I am letting them grow wherever they want. You can see some of the
hail holes in the leaves. It was only peas sized and only for about 10 minutes.
|Jackmanii Clematis. I actually planted this one.|
|The tiniest flower in the garden. |
One of my favorites. Johnny Jump-ups.
|The same lilies from further back.|
|Self seeded Morning Glories. The garden is full of them. I am pulling|
them out like weeds. A mix of Grandpa Ott's and a red one whose name I forget.
Scarlet something... I looked it up. Scarlet O'Hara. How could I forget?
|The Mondarda is just starting to bloom.|
|This year's fairy garden. The fairy is safe in my quilt room because|
those cute little American Red Squirrels take them away.
|One of Jim's marigolds with a tiny butterfly.. It is about 1-1/2 inches across.|
|These Tiger Lillie's are just about to bloom. I put them in anyway.|
|Looking out from under the grape arbor.|
That is all for now. Here's hoping for no hail tonight.
