We’ve had hot days and quite a bit of rain, so the garden is flourishing. Mostly: the boxwood seems to have caught blight. I pulled out one completely dead bush and chopped back two others severely; will have to look into treatment options.
Fourth, coneflowers and gladioli; judging from real estate-site pictures, the gladioli will be red, which might produce a garish enough combination to satisfy me. But they aren’t in bloom yet, so we’ll see.
Sixth and finally, milkweed just over the garden fence (plus day lilies). I’ve seen monarch butterflies hovering in this patch, but didn’t manage to photograph one. Pretend the day lily is a butterfly, as it’s the right orange.
Six on Saturday is hosted by The Propagator.
