At the Farm
After only 2 days away, the lawn was a mess of dandelions. it looked like a place that was for sale and not cared for. But in the beds, between the weeds, so much was happening!
So here's some of what I see:
A little toad. I am so afraid to ride the mower with these guys about!
The rain smashed the Amsonia, but I still like it.
Columbine shows up everywhere. This time in my blue and yellow garden!
Creekside. Cynthia, do you need more FMN?
Primulas near ligularia, rodgersia and hostas.
Dodecatheon still blooming. :)
Enkianthus is subtle, but well worth the look.
Euphorbia and Heuchera Rachel grow near Overdam grass.
A mystery white clematis, possibly White Swan.
My early peony, Claire de Lune.
Ravenswing and hosta.
My little redbud tree.
The smokebush is leafing out.
Sweet Cicely is everywhere.
Veronica is so sweet...
The view toward the veg garden.
Ajuga chocolate chip. It was slow to start, but now I give pieces away!
Allium and columbine. One of nature's plantings.
Clematis Alpine Willy
Berberis Royal Cloak has amazing blooms.
A new short iris.
Lupines have seeded more than I wish throughout the vegetable garden...This is ONE plant.
Salvia Eveline. My cousin was named Eveline. I miss her.
A snapping turtle sat on the dock sunning itself for several hours. When I finally got around to photographing it, it was floating in the sunny pond...
