Wow! Not your typical 1st part of June in Ohio! It’s 90 and humid, a lot like August! Yuck.
It’s been storming and raining for several days, but today we finally saw sunshine – but this heat and I are not friends. So the poor garden won’t be seeing much of me today!
In my photo gallery, I show a picture of a perky yellow perennial I’ve only known by the name
of Twinks…so if someone can enlighten me as to its proper name – please do. It’s just one of those plants that make you feel happy. I say it’s cute, but that makes my husband nauseous. I call people who are really old cute, too. He doesn’t get it.
We have a beautiful Spirea on the sunny side of the house, I’m not sure of it’s name. We put it in before we thought about wanting
to remember what the name of a plant was. However, no known name or not, this is nearly one of our garden favorites. The nearly lime green leaves, with the raspberry florets makes a striking image in the garden.
The side garden is a work in progress…we have an old Variegated
Weigela that has been injured somewhere along the way, and it’s now growing in a rather unsightly way….and it was back when we planted indiscriminately, so it’s in the wrong spot. So before I take any pictures of the whole south side of our house, the Weigela needs to go, and we need to replace it with something else. It’s right next to this beautiful Spirea.
The wad is spent though, for this year. So working on the side garden this year is limited to maintenance. Maybe next year.
