A few from the hard drive…

Last year at this time, I was doing “Wordless Wednesday” every week, but I’ve gotten away from it since last fall sometime.  You can check out a WW from about a year ago here.  There a lot more, but this is the only one with the photos moved here.  Am I not pathetic?  I moved this blog in January and I still haven’t moved even half [a quarter?] of the photos from the old site.

Anyway, I thought I would rummage around on my hard drive to see if I wanted to post any of the 5,000 photos I have taken lately. 

This is a sundrop. I can’t remember the name. The yellow kind are called Missouri Sundrops, but these pink ones have a different name that is escaping me right now.sundropLook how twisty and gnarly my crabapple tree is getting. It was so tiny when Larry gave it to me just a few years ago, but it is starting to get the characteristics I love about them already. There are a couple other posts about this tree here and here.appletrunkLook – a meeting of the Future Brussels Sprouts of America club!brussels sproutsA Monarda “Jacob Cline” just getting ready to open. If you get Monarda for your garden, this is a good variety because it is mildew resistant. It is also invasive, so be careful where you put it, or it will try to take over everything.monarda

Finally, this species daylily. An un-named variety that blooms for just a short time early in the summer. I bought it before I really knew much about them and it’s planted as filler on a bank I am trying to reclaim from weeds. It’s nothing special, except that it is.species_hemHave a great day, friends!

    We have a flower in CA like the one you show (unnamed). It is evening primrose. Is yours similarly named? Your photos are spectacular. What a joy each morning to look forward to your blog.

    Monarda – Bee Balm we call it – is probably my favorite plant in my weedy garden..I love how it has taken over with it’s wonderful odor, it’s hummingbird attraction, and it’s bright red happy color. It is one of the few flowers I haven’t managed to kill:)

    I’m jealous of the beauty that surrounds you. I rent a home so I do not even attempt to start a garden that I know I can’t take with me.

    I’ve also been know to kill poor innocent flowers. They now fear me.

    :)

    Deb – I will have more recipes for them this year too. I never get tired of them – yum!

    Gayle – that is exactly right – I was hoping someone would come in and remind me of the name – thanks!

    Gail – it is tough to kill it and I love the smell too. The flowers make a nice tea actually and it is supposed to be packed with viatamin C.

    Ashleigh – I have killed a few myself. Every gardener has a number a fatalities, I think. I only show you guys the survivors!
