I spent some time doing some work in the garden, getting ready for our company that will be arriving on Wednesday. I always want it to look as close to perfect as I can get it. I'm sure no one else notices the weeds, plants in need of dead heading or empty spots like I do, but still it makes me feel better if I can get it done.
Echinacea 'Fragrant Angel' has it's first flower opening, I didn't notice any fragrance yet.
My favorite pink Penstemon which returned from the dead. It was dried dead sticks after this winter, but I decided not to be as ruthless as I usually am and gave it a chance. I'm so glad I did!
Cosmos 'Sensation' and Phlox blooming in the dry and hot driveway garden.
Coreopsis 'Limerock Ruby' - Grace mentioned it in a recent post and I commented that the only reason I hadn't bought it this year was because I hadn't seen it. Well here it is, I found it this weekend. Let's see if it survives winter this time!
Dahlia 'Pretty Lady'
Dahlia 'Love Parade'
Today is housework day, but I'm sure I'll make my way outside to the garden sometime. There's always something more fun outside to do than dusting, vacuuming or cleaning the bathroom!
