Living in New England is sometimes wonderful (we only wish we had an air conditioner a few times a year, fall foliage is gorgeous), but sometimes it's not. Like when almost all of June is rainy and raw, which means that our already short three-month summer has now been reduced to two months.
In spite of my whining, I am thankful for where we live.
However, when we hit the lottery, we will have our summer home here in MA and our winter home.... somewhere that doesn't get snow. (It's nice to dream - somebody's gotta win, right?)
A few new things blooming around the yard for Fertilizer Friday:
Clematis surrounded by Circle Flower
Some unknown type of Rudbeckia:
And another unknown Rudbeckia:
Astilbe Peach Blossom and Alchemilla Mollis
Clematis: Jackmanii and Niobe
For some unknown reason, my perennials like to self sow in our brick walkway. I have been pulling out Bleeding Hearts for years. This year it looks like a Lady's Mantle farm. One of these days I want to lift the bricks, dig them out and transplant them but first I have to find somewhere to plant them
(REVISION: Yesterday hubby weeded the yard for me while I was at work, great guy that he is..... guess what else he weeded. You got it - my Lady's Mantle seedlings. That's OK, I'll have plenty more next year!)
