Back at the end of May, I took a panoramic pic of my backyard gardens. Now that summer is in full swing, I thought it would be fun to compare then and now…
What a difference a couple of months makes!
The Coneflowers are blooming beautifully. I’m hoping they will help me get pics of all the beautiful butterflies that have been coming to visit. There have been so many this year, but they never sit still long enough for me to snap a picture!
And speaking of beautiful – look at my gorgeous Casablanca lilies. I love those curling petals – she’s definitely a show stopper!
You may not recall, but a couple years ago, I bought two daylilies – weeks apart. One called Autumn Joy and one called Crimson Pirate. When they started to bloom, I kicked myself, because they seems so similar to each other. But they’d never actually bloomed at the same time…
And now that I’ve seen them side by side I feel a lot better! They are definitely different! (Autumn Joy on the left, Crimson Pirate on the right).
My pretty pink Speedwell is doing so nicely this year! I have a purple one in the sidewalk garden but it hasn’t bloomed yet.
And it’s harvest time! I don’t have a lot that’s edible in my gardens, but what I do have we certainly enjoy.
Are you enjoying any fruits (or vegetables) of your labour?
