I have nothing much to write about today, so let's just take another look at the garden, shall we?
This is how it looks in the late afternoon. A far cry from the winter view! Yesterday after work Dave and I sat out on the bench, which you can barely see beneath the trees in the back, and admired all the flying insects illuminated in the shafts of sunlight. We seem to have lots of little gnats and hoverflies and things. Maybe it's our "No-Mow May" approach to the lawn.
This is one of our climbing (or maybe rambling?) roses. Dave didn't prune it this spring because we learned the hard way that spring pruning eliminates the blossoms. It didn't bloom at all last year.
This is red campion (despite the fact that it's pink). It grows wild in the garden and comes back every year with no intervention from us.
These snapdragons might look a little tired, but that's not surprising -- they're from last summer! Our winter never got cold enough to kill them so we just kept them, and they're blooming again this year.
The sage has sent up a flower spike. (This isn't cooking sage -- it's an ornamental variety.)
This is one of my favorite roses. In addition to looking amazing, it smells heavenly.
And here's another shot of the foxgloves. Wouldn't this picture make a good bookmark?
