Most of my gardens are not worth mentioning right now. This cold spring has finally changed this week to a warm early summer and I am hoping this helps the gardens.
I mentioned the other day that the iris' had begun to bloom,
and that the Zephirine Drouhin rose bush was about to burst with blooms
Poor munched on leaves!
This is the rose this morning!
I'm not a great gardener, but I know I need to give some attention to this bush. I see some black spot in this photo.
My peonies remain closed, but they are so close! I'm thinking this warm weather will help!
The dainty white iris' have bloomed now, too!
The Echinacea (purple coneflower) is coming on strong
The sweet Bleeding heart grew well and had delightful blooms this spring,
Here is a Annabelle Hydrangea that was gifted to me! It's got some blooms started on it! Very excited about this hydrangea!
And this large Hollyhock! I love old fashioned flowers in my garden to enjoy and to cut for the house.
We are getting mulch soon, and I spied a few weeds that need to be pulled. The picket fence is going to get a few new sections, so it hasn't been repainted yet. These things take time and money and with starting our business last August, we've had to choose carefully where both are allocated. We did just talk about it last evening so I think we'll set a bit aside for this garden, and hopefully have a few non rainy Saturdays when we have the time to get to these kinds of projects.
