The poor vegetable garden was first drowned, and is now getting scorched.
The plants are so confused but it seems they're trying to make a comeback!
In the raised cinderblock beds in the backyard, we've got peppers and tomatoes. . .
along with spinach and various types of lettuce. . .
Along the fence, there is corn and the snap peas are really taking off
(the string beans on the far right, not so much)!
There is now a mound of violas under the maple tree. . . and in another flower bed, forget-me-nots, astilbe and other various plants are loving the sun!
The side yard
My day lilies are just getting ready to bloom!
I was given three of these plants and I can't wait to see what color the blooms are!
Yummy lavender (that now has purple buds showing)
and can you believe how monstrous my hydrangea is!
The blooms were a light purple last year, and so far this year they are stark white and beautiful!
I think this is foxglove that I have gone a little crazy with. . .
They add great height to the flower beds but they popped up everywhere!
Pampas Grass from my dad. It's still a reasonable and manageable size.
I love these sword ferns! They were transplants from our mess of a back yard when we first moved in and they are getting huge!
Green and Yellow leafed Hosta and a small red carnation
White daisies getting ready to open on the left, a tall siberiean iris, a stuggling peony, another hosta in front, and devil's walking stick to the right(crocosmia )
I'm not sure what that soft light ground cover is yet . .
that was given to me and I can't remember what is called.
Can someone PLEASE tell me what this thing is that grew out of one of my irises?
Someone gave me the iris bunch and I think this came with on accident. It is huge and is now starting to show some small yellow blooms at the top of the plant! What the heck is it?
My russian sage is really taking off and smells delicious!
A couple of Banana Leaf trees and a few Cannas
