I’ve a busy day (as I did yesterday) so just a quick rundown of the plants that are really thriving in my garden at the moment:

  • honeysuckle- it’s blooming and climbing all over the porch!
  • lavender- not blooming yet, but after being harshly cut back in early spring (it was getting far too craggy) it’s really taken off.
  • coral bells- I wasn’t expecting these to come back this year, but they’re here and they’re blooming.
  • phlox- We’ve two white phlox plants in the side yard and again, I wasn’t expecting them to return this year but they’re here and apparently pretty satisfied.
  • grape vines- We need to do some cluster thinning.
  • bleeding heart- Another thing that I planted last year that I didn’t have the highest hopes for, but they’ve just ended their spring blooming. Lovely to see them.
  • sea roses- We have some sea roses on the street by the side of the house and they’re looking amazing and fragrant and making the bees very happy.
  • anemone- Not blooming yet, but they really seem to adore something about the light or soil in the front garden. ¬†They’re not blooming yet, but they’ve been here for years and they’re spreading, which makes me very happy.

Keeping an eye out for my guard, sea holly, etc.
