Here’s a shot of the garden that I dug and planted last fall with it’s first blooms. The daisies were looking pretty good before I went to Ohio and peaked while I was gone; here they are really past their prime.
Pretty soon the focus will be yellow when the rudbekia blooms, then the daylilies.This fall I need to dig it wider!
This wild garden is on a bank by the driveway. Not a good place to mow with rocks and slope so for several years I have been trying to establish a wild garden here. So far this year, Sweet Williams and Flax have bloomed and now the Cosmos are center stage along with some Crown Vetch that moved in on it’s own.I need to prune the trees again so we can see the pond behind.
The mulberry trees will have a good crop this year – I hope it brings the Indigo Buntings!
Mulberries are messy, they drop a lot of fruit on the ground. I never saw a purple cow, but we used to have a purple pony. He was white most of the year, but during mulberry season he liked to roll in the ones on the ground and dyed himself purple.
