Thunderstorms are rumbling through right now, along with some torrential rain, so my gardening was cut a little short today. I love thunderstorms though, so I’m content to sit in my darkening kitchen typing this post, rather than being outside weeding and deadheading peonies.
Have I mentioned that it’s been an abnormally cool and wet spring and early summer? We’ve had rain 6 out of the past 7 days, and that’s been the norm since April.
The vegetable garden is less than pleased, but the perennials and newly planted trees and shrubs are loving it. So are the weeds, which have taken over every border I’ve yet to get to for “spring” clean-up (i.e., weeding, edging and mulching)…at this rate I might make it through the final border by fall!
Below are some photos of the plants in bloom this weekend. Enjoy!
