In December, I wintersowed several containers of foxglove. In my mind, I saw hundreds of these spikes with trumpet shaped blooms poking their heads above the mess in the perennial bed. Instead, I got this. One single foxglove plant, about 18" tall. Careful, don't step on it, please.
A new rudbeckia has appeared. This one is nearly 4" across.
The "red" bee balm is fading to a dusty maroon color. The brilliance is gone.
Bee Balm "Lemon Mint" is reblooming after my whacking spell a month ago. I cut it back hard when it flopped due to all the rain.
A new sunflower near the birdfeeder.
The arbor in the perennial bed is nearly covered by the cardinal climber. I see buds, but no blooms. This morning the hummingbirds were enjoying Yvonne's salvia.
The front bed is filling in nicely. I'm happy with this area now. Next year it should be much better.
Finally, the future. Datura inoxia's seed pod, also called "thorn apple".
It's 64 and sunny. I put the sprinkler on the potager this morning. At 9am, I'll move it to the sunny side of the perennial bed. We need rain. Low 90s today.
