Another Penstomon blooming, this one gets full sun in my Shed Garden. It doesn’t mind this hot & dry location and blooms prolifically all summer long.
This is my Grandma’s favorite Rose in my garden. In fact I think it was a transplant from her old apartment garden bed when she moved in with us 6 years ago. I cut her a small bouquet Friday.
Thermopsis villosa is a native plant that I picked up at a sale last fall. It’s commonly called Carolina Bushpea or False Lupine. The blooms are very similar to the Lupine which is nice since I can’t get that pretty perennial to grow here. It’s been a wet weekend so far, but I’m not complaining because the garden needed the extra moisture. However it limits what I can actually do outside right now. Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.
