Under the Pink?

Standard

I was doing so well posting for a while, then…life happened. Oh well. Here’s some catch-up pictures.

Variagated fuscia bush, a gift from the neighbors.


A pretty plant, both close up and over all (the close up bloom pic is the one alllll they way over on the left).

The pinto beans are starting to look happier, if a bit small still.


The heat we had Monday/Tuesday this week helped a lot!


Tomatoes are still struggling. These are smaller than my smallest fingernail. Dammit. 


The other hosta is blooming. Okay it’s more lavender than pink, sue me.


Astilbe is fantastic this year! I let it dry to near-death by accident last year, and all the blooms died. This was dug out of a very neglected garden, at least four years ago, from a house my Canadian friend was renting. This is the best it has ever looked. Apparently I scared the life back into it!


Another lily – I do like this one quite a lot. It makes me think of country gardens with huge bushes of pale pink roses. And cream, really fresh cream. Aldi again, planted just last year: “lollipop.”
