Wow

I took a potted hibiscus plant to work because there was no room for it inside here ar tome, and located it in a sunny south facing area.

Wow. A good sight for visitors.

Volunteer

Feeding songbirds has the side effect of birds dropping seed throughout our yard, which results in volunteer sunflowers popping up. We generally let them pop up and thrive or not. This volunteer adds cheer to the middle part of the vegetable garden.

Yarrow

Our red yarrow in brilliant bloom and several pollinators frequent it. The adjacent lavender tries to photobomb into the image.


Our towns’ Canada 150 Garden Tour is Saturday July 8 and our humble place is a stop. If you’re in the area I invite you to take the tour. Your $10 ticket ($5 for members) will support the Dresden and District Horticultural Society as well as entitle you to a tour of nine quite different settings. We hope to see you!

Welcome cheer

Our Gaillardia are still blooming at this late stage of the growing season. It brings a most welcome and most needed cheer at a time when most things are done blooming. Welcome cheer when Faye is in Day 35 of the tomato harvest and she, we, so look forward to it being done.
