Nepeta × faassenii ‘Walker’s Low’ | Physocarpus opulifolius ‘Monlo’ – Diablo Ninebark
Iris sibirica ‘Caesars Brother’ – Siberian Iris
This cocoon is in a viburnum at work. I’ve been watching it since I saw it last winter. Not hip enough to know all the logistics of when the pretty kritter is going to pop out or if this is a dud. Anyone? I did look-up what viburnums are hosts for: Baltimore Checkerspot, Spring Azure, Henry’s Elfin, Great Spangled Fritillary, Aphrodite Fritillary, Silver-bordered Fritillary.
The clematis is Bee’s Jubilee. This is in my garden and she really steals the show. Even better? She will rebloom in September!
Here’s Grandma’s Iris ~ In all honesty, there’s not anything really special here IMO. They aren’t a weird color or a rebloomer… Just purple iris. They are special to me though, knowing my grandma’s hands had touched them.
Dianthus gratianopolitanus ‘Firewitch’ ~ Cheddar pinks, carnation
Geranium sanguineum ‘Alba’
