It has been a beautiful warm, almost summer like, week here in the hills. With a few showers and the warm temperatures it was just not only the grass that was growing but the flowers are keeping up their fast pace of growth this week.
It was cloudy this morning as I walked around checking the flowerbeds so the pictures are a little dark.
Another surprise here. I definitely do not think this is the Bicolor Monkshood root that I ordered and planted. Do you?
I have got many flowers that were the wrong color before but this one???? Sure looks like a Hosta to me. Poor thing will not even have a name now because I do not have a clue as to which hosta it may be. Maybe Jim the ‘Hosta King’ can help me identify it when it gets bigger.
“Corn Harvest” is all yellow including its beards. It is a reblooming iris so it will give me some more yellow blooms in late summer or early fall. With the crazy weather it is hard to tell when it will bloom again or if it will at all. LOL!
The Weigela bush ‘Wine and Roses’ is in its second year in the flowerbed and although it is small yet it looks lovely with its dark foliage and deep rose blooms. ’Brilliant’ Dianthus is in bloom in front of it.
The ‘Keys of Heaven’ valerian is growing down by the garden shed.
I got some more seeds sowed this week in the trial bed and some dahlias bulbs potted up.
Also in the planting department a ‘ Nelly Moser’ clematis vine, a ‘Banana Cream’ daisy, and two more white astilbes were planted.
