Here's what's blooming in Giddy's garden today
The pink Double Knockout rose is new this year and is doing very well
May Night Salvia is just waiting for the New Dawn Rose to bloom
The red begonia in the hanging basket on the porch really brightens a shady spot
We finally got the four cords of wood stacked in various racks around the door yard
And a couple more next to the garage
The Oriental Poppies are just about to pop
The cobalt blue of the Siberian Iris shouts in the garden
Geranium Sanguineum has reseeded all over!
Clematis "Firecracker" is the star of the garden
Zonal Geranium "Tango" really pops in the fence planter. White verbena and silver artemesia set it off.
Since it's election year, I planned on a red, white and blue palette for the garage planters
I'm on my second wheelbarrow, and as any good gardener knows, we don't throw anything away. This one turned into a nifty planter.
I purchased this Japanese Maple on sale from Home Depot last year. It was a pathetic little thing, and this past winter's snow literally bent it over backwards, but the little fella came back gangbusters and is now a beautiful specimen.
Miss Kim lilac is just beginning her beautiful show and the scent is heavenly!
And speaking of heavenly scents, this is today's loaf of bread.
Life is good,
