Just in the last few weeks, summer in the shape of heat has arrived. It really isn't a great time to plant once it's hot. So hopefully you have your gardens planted before the heat becomes too intense for the roots to establish.
This is the first bloom of the season for the wild morning glory I must have hauled over from the rent house last year in a pot of something else. Its leaves are a mottled gray and green.
My cone flowers are doing well that I planted last year. I just love this color. I have another cone flower that is white.
It was planted over by the seating area and didn't get as much sun, so the other day I moved it over here to the area where I have this one. It is far behind the orange one in size.
Does anyone know what this pink flower is? I've forgotten. Reminds me a bit of scabiosa. But I don't think that's what it is.
What's growing in your garden right now? Is everything beginning to bloom, or are your flowers just now budding out?
