Week of May 24th, 2017, My Yard
Iris from Jeannie
Alison’s Yard May 27th
Alison’s yard May 29th, and Xerxes, and AJ
AJ with the first strawberry of the season
One of the Irises from Jeannie, in your back yard
The false indigo blooming even more
The front yard
The first Pansy flower
Peonies getting huge
A rose in the side yard by the air conditioner
The Tomatillo soon to be taking over the world
Zinnias in the front yard
Cilantro seedlings getting bigger
Columbine by the driveway. I show this because as we speak, other columbines are already going to seed.
The butternut squash hill. Notice there’s only one? Notice there’s no pictures of the zucchini hill, or cucumbers? That’s because some critter has been digging up the seeds I planted. So I replanted them and put cages around all of them.
The there’s Xerxes… Mr. Cute
…and Mr. “Annoyed Don is taking his picture”
And in case you were worried AJ doesn’t have enough to eat
Saturday, June 3rd…
Updates to Alison’s yard
Here we have the latest in the saga of the tomatillo that will take over the world
Here are some pictures of the rose bush by the air conditioner
and as you can see, there’s tons more buds happening. So if you don’t stay up there too long, and I prune it as flowers dry up, there should still be flowers on it by the time you get home.
here we have our “favorite” weed.. the imposter, annoying little daisy (in case you missed it)
Here are the darker red peonies now in bloom
and these are a variation of phlox up in front of the hydrangea and which we were wondering what this plant might be.
and a yellow flower of many more to come up by the bleeding heart. Four O’Clocks maybe?
And then there’s some new things in my yard
Don’t know what these are but they’re a perennial and they have suddnly decided to appear in places I’d never seen them before.
These are the peonies on the east side, along Wilcox. These originally came from my mom’s yard.
And another perennial. Don’t know what it’s called that I have zillions of.
And then, for the first time since I moved in 10 years ago, my rose bush by the fireplace has decided to bloom
Sunday June 4th
New in Alison’s yard… OK. First, I have to tell you.. I’ve been going to your house almost every day lately. Why? Well because it has not rained for a week now, even though the weather people have been saying there would be rain every day. Last night there was a massive storm system headed straight here. It got to Randall Rd. and dissipated. Like it knew I really really wanted it to get here and just for spite, evaporated a half mile away.
There was only the slightest drizzle for maybe 2 minutes and that was it.
But I’ve been riding there at 5:30 in the morning and it’s not so bad.
Anyway.. the latest..
This is the first Stock to bloom.
And then all sorts of new things at my house
The first coneflower to make an appearance
A star shaped columbine
A volunteer Catnip plant
Alliums that were Never There Before
Some kind of geranium I’ve been told
And what Brussel Sprouts do the second year
Updates from June 11, 2017
Stella D’Oro lilies starting to bloom
Four O’Clocks blooming
The overwintered pepper plants getting leaves.. and a baby one I planted just in case the big one doesn’t recover fast enough
Tomaato plant getting bigger
The Tomatillo already overflowing its cage
cucumber plants finally
another overwintered pepper
and two little ones. I yanked out one overwintered one because it was just sitting there looking like a skeleton
The Cairt patch with beets and still some spinach below
The Brussels Sprouts
The Butternut Squash
The Acorn Squash
A second Stock
The Rose bush in the back yard
The Rose bush by the garden
Another different rose bush by the garden
And Bees doing what they do in their free time away from the hive. This was at my house
