Planted hollyhocks and lupins today -and some lovely deep purple-flowered perennial pilfered from a friend's garden. Tomorrow: delphiniums, columbines, aster, sweet peas, bell flowers, and busy lizzies. Hope it rains tonight! That, or I hope my hose elongates over the night so I can reach all my garden patches. flower

I have one pear tree and I thought for sure it would not bear fruit (I heard you need two pollination) but it looks like we have some swollen buds Very Happy

I picked some lily of the valley it smells SO GOOD in the house.

Well, with the humidity index, it has reached 42 degrees this week. Even the leaves on my older trees (at least 50 years) are wilting. Mother Nature is not about happy mediums, is she?

My peonies are done,there won't be much to take pics of this year as most
of mine are new and will take awhile to get established,but I do enjoy
seeing what others are doing with their flowers and what they plant

I will be in the garden this weekend so I'll take some pictures for you ladies... My plan is to weed (ugh), add more rock to my front bed and maybe buy some fruit plants.

I'm excited my Iris' are finally coming in bloom.
