I’m doing this post from my phone, so let’s see how it goes.
This is the time of year when I do evaluations for planning for next year. I’m looking particularly at this bed:
There are 4 shrubs in this bed, all babies. Most of that green stuff is foxglove, plus a few annuals. This is a dry bed because of tree overhang, which is proving to be a challenge.
The shade bed in back is also struggling to find its footing:
The plants are pretty small still and I had some problems with critters pulling them up. The green at the back is a little strip of our neighbors yard behind their house, which is just weeds and overgrowth. A fence used to block that view. We are debating on putting up some sort of barrier here, but no budget for that right now.
On to some blooms!
Potted baby coneflowers that I dug up that are waiting to go to their new homes. Sharing the bounty of self seeding!
Did I show my urns in their spots? This is where they ended up:

Lots and lots of bees. Plus several painted ladies:
