Happy Humpday my friends!!
Tomorrow, the shackles that keep me attached to my desk get unlocked and I get a field trip day into the wilderness!! Now, before everyone congratulates me, I will be in a rain garden weeding. The only reason I’m in the muck is that I’m the only one in the company that can ID grasses & sedges from cattails and phragmites. So, in essence, I’m leaving my cushy desk job to weed and I’m excited about it!! Gesh, do you think I’m in the wrong position here?! I should be a maintenance manager not an estimator. Oh well.
Veronica ‘Eveline’ ~ Speedwell
Yucca filamentosa ~ Yucca or Adam’s Needle
Pennisetum setaceum ‘Red Riding Hood’ ~ fountain grass
Hydrangea macrophylla ‘Twist And Shout’
Aegopodium podograria ‘Variegatum’ ~ Bishops weed, Goutweed, Snow on the Mountain
One size DOES NOT fit all =-) These are adorable, IMO!!
Hemerocallis ‘Ruby Stella’
File this under ‘Not Sure’ =-0 In the Echinacea family.
Monarda didyma ‘Raspberry Wine’ ~ Bee balm
These were supposed to be the ‘Very mildew resistant’, however check out the powdery mildew on the leaves. It has been a harsh year for gardeners with fungus susceptible plants. Not much we can do about it now.
Geum coccineum ‘Cooky’ ~ Avens
Playing with my fisheye lens and lantana. So cute!!
