My two little dogwoods are showing signs of drought. Poor trees. Have set up the sprinkler to get this area hydrated. The mature trees really suck up the moisture.
Walking down the path towards the lake I see the Blackberry Lily, Belamcanda chinensis, in full glory.
Just beyond is some Gaillardia, busy with bees.
A nice surprise--- one of the Cyclamen has popped up! I have more to keep on the lookout for....love this little bloom.
Around the other side of the bed is my Pumpkin-on-a-stick, Solanum integrifolium . Tina posted about this plant a little while back. I got mine from a neighbor who had been over at Park Seed.
Cute eh? Can't wait for it to turn orange.
A new find in the edges of the yard....a Blue Lobelia, great native. What fun!
Down near the water I was trying to get a photo from one side of the yard to the other....when I saw I had a little friend .....look who is looking for some nectar in the cannas.
Do you see it? A little hummingbird.
We have so many hummingbirds in the yard, love watching them.
And now for the long shot of the yard.....
Cannas, Muhly Grass, Penisetum 'Princess Molly', Gaura, Chamaecyparis pisifera 'Vintage Gold' and Elephant ears. The garden is filling in pretty well. Apparently the hummers like it too.
