It sure was hot again yesterday, it hit 89 degrees. I saw on the news that we actually are breaking heat records here for this time of year. Yesterday the littlest gardener and I spent lots of time watering the garden, and she had a great time surprising me by watering me! She thought it was hilarious that she soaked my pants. We found strawberries on the Ornamental Strawberries (fragaria ananassa) that I've shown in other posts. We ate them all before I could get a picture. They are very small, but very sweet.
When I was little I always imagined that fuchsia flowers were ballerinas. They still look like that to me.
A perfect pink rosebud. Once these fully open the petals fall off in a few days, but it does have the best fragrance.
My first peony bloom this year, it will open a little further and have a dark pink edge along the inner petals.
White Lupine with yellow daylilies.
World's smallest Asiatic Lily. I have no idea why it's so small, but you can see in comparison with Alyssum 'Tiny Tim' just how small it is!
Meadow Rue (thalictrum) looks like little spiders to me. There is actually a spider hiding in there that you can see if you enlarge the picture.
A new water lily. I just love these.
Day 2 of 'Sioux', it's starting to take on a pinkish hue, it may be difficult to notice in the picture though.
The littlest gardener and I are going plant shopping with my Mom and hopefully my sister and baby nephew today. The weather is supposed to cool down a bit this weekend so it will be perfect for planting.
