|The SW corner of my patio. All the glass glimmers in the setting sun. This however was taken early this morning. This is what I see as I drink my morning coffee. The hummingbirds visit then too.|
|My new petunias|
|A mess of lilies growing among gooseberries, raspberries and columbine|
|My hen and chick (or is it a rooster?) is happy to see me. It will grow a few more inches and then get flowers on the tip and then die|
|My petunias. The Asiatic lilies will die down in a few days but then the day lilies will be in bloom|
|This is a perennial whose name I forgot. I love the delicate little cups. Next to it are morning glories I haven't killed yet|
True gardeners, I have been told, never use annuals. They carefully balance perennials. Although I have some perennials, a lot that came with the house have died due to ignorance and neglect. Someday I will replace them. Until then, it is mainly annuals for me.
Haven't found my chipmunk. As they do everything so noisily, I thought I would at least hear it. Had all 4 grandbabies this afternoon.
