The perennials have been blooming like mad this year. I think all the rain and the relatively mild winter have had a great deal to do with it.
My poppys are the best they have been in years, helped by the fact that monsoons have not beaten them to a pulp as soon as they bloom.
Columbine and yellow flags are blooming by the pond. It's a very pleasant place to sit and drink morning tea. The two oak trees that shaded it are gone, but the swamp maples are big enough to do the job.
Clean up progresses slowly. We'll see, grasshopper......
As always, thanks for stopping by.............*s*
