Last week in the garden we had:
On the west side of the house we have the slender deutzia in bloom at the back of the herb bed.
And sea pinks surrounding the inceeasingly tall lily stalks.
My peonies are almost ready to bloom. Actually this picture is form several days ago and the first two blooms have appeared. (And immediately been cut and taking into the house!)
Last weekend we cleaned up a few more beds. This is the one next to the garage. On the east side of the house it gets a lot of shade and stays fairly moist. So I have hostas, irises, and a couple of grasses in it. Also a bunch of stuff that I put in three years ago and am to lazy to go dig through the files to figure out what it is.
My irises are oddly pale this year. The cat is a standard issue ginger barn cat. So the color of the photo isn’t off by much.
