|Nootka Wild Rose|
|Nora Barlow Columbine|
All these columbines were well behaved under the fir trees but when we removed the leaning trees and these beauties saw the light (all the plants, really), they became spectacular.
And they gave birth to probably a gazillion babies - which is why they get a bad rap in orderly gardens.
Can't you imagine a fairy wearing one as a cap in the Frog & Toad books?
|Weigela - variegated leaf|
|My favorite variegated leaf Iris. Soft blue blooms|
|This white Bearded Iris came from Aunt Ruby's garden|
Man-eating thorns but the smell is divine.
This is a white Rugosa but the buds have peppermint striping.
|Simplicity rose started from a cutting from Creative Friend's fenceline.|
|Sun Rose - Helianthemum|
|Patio pots started.|
We just had a couple of near 90' days (May!) and it was delightful to sit out and be dive-bombed by the stinkin' guerrilla hummingbirds who chirped very clearly, "more syrup, or else".
Back to the usual 70' springy weather tomorrow.
My sister gave me the snail and the frog and miraculously, they have not crashed and burned.
