Look at all that stuff! Are you, like me, clipping and pruning and deadheading and tossing?
I can still detect the scent of Catmint on my hands. And you can see below that my cat was very um, well, "happy" with all of the trimmings.
Can you believe it's August already? I thought I'd share a little of what's blooming right now.
This is an Origanum 'Bristol Cross' I think. I've got 4 different varieties of ornamental Oregano and I can't keep them straight.
Persicaria 'Firetail' is finally blooming.
Phlox paniculata 'Bright Eyes'
Potentilla fruticosa 'Pink Beauty'
Rudbeckia 'Cherry Brandy'
Teucrium 'Purple Tails'
And finally I wanted to show you the foliage on my Columbine. [Aquilegia vulgaris 'Woodside Strain.'] I have a lot of seed I'd like to give away to my beloved readers. If you want to email me [firstname.lastname@example.org] with your address I will get it to you. By the way, this seed can be sown immediately and will come true, meaning the plants will have this fabulous foliage from early spring until frost. Hardy to Zone 3.
