Late June

We are in drought. I think I spent most of the last couple of weeks watering and trying to keep things going. Most of the thundershowers in the area missed us, but the next few days hold promise of more so we shall see. In the meantime between hauling the hoses around I have a few photos to share.

Grandma’s Blessing roses
Mullein has spiked!
Pink asiatic lilies
Catalpa tree in the meadow – it looks pink due to the sunset
Succulent “waterfall”
more succulents
Daylilies getting ready. Filipendula blooming in the background
Louisiana Iris
Hakonechloa grass and hosta
Pots by the backdoor
The meadow waiting to explode in summer color
A profusion of shape and color

The japanese iris are just starting to bloom – I will post some photos once they all come into flower.

    • lots of it around. its native and also some consider it invasive. it is messy but the one here was here when we moved in and its great in the meadow where the mess isn’t a bother. the flowers are gorgeous and smell heavenly

      • I have enjoyed the one that I work with. It is one of two self sown trees there, although the other is now gone. It can self sow, but does not seem to naturalize enough to be a problem.
