Ugh, I feel tired just writing all the stuff out. But hopefully I can get it all done and the rest of the garden maintenance for the summer will be easy.
Meanwhile, more things are starting to bloom. Creeping thyme:
Candytuft- woodchucks didn't get it so this one is a winner with me.
These bearded irises have already come and gone:
I've come to love all primula- they are small and give a nice little pop of color in the spring:
Last year I added some Victorian lace primrose:
Last year I moved some bungleweed to a new location. It is blooming now and the bees are loving it:
I planted a few stalks of Soloman's Seal last year and they multiplied well:
I love the dangling little flowers. That's a bit of lady's mantle in front of it. This area is a new shade bed that I dug last year. A month ago it was hard to distinguish things I planted from the weeds or what was going to come up where. Yesterday I inspected the bed and was kind of in awe of much I planted last year and how good the bed is going to look.
In the backyard shade bed, Lamium is blooming:
I planted this ground cover in front of hostas.
