If you missed Peter Del Tredici’s Cornell Plantations lecture last night, there’s video of a similar talk he gave last spring here.
This afternoon, my garden buddy Lynn from Sin City to Slaterville stopped by for some Joe-Pye weed (or as she prefers boneset) to plant in her ditch.
I’m more than happy to share. It’s not like it’s scarce around here. In fact, the plant defines this place with it’s wet soils along the wetland. I’ve got several cultivars planted around the place. But I’m fond of the wild…
Bowed by the rain, it bounced back just fine.
Plenty o’Joe-Pye out into the wetland.
Eupatorium and Solidago go great together.
Apologies for the sparse posting lately. Life has been hectic. Here are some images from a quick walkaround on Saturday morning.
Pulling back, lots more purple with the clematis: Hosta, Astilbe
South bed: Echiinacea, Daucus, geraniums, amorphophallus, coleus.
Aloe flowering. First time that’s happened to me. Guess it will die and the pups will take over in that pot?
Paeonia tenuifolia blooms twice.

If dandelions were hard to grow, they would be most welcome on any lawn.
Speaking of hard to grow … Hat tip to Carol at May Dreams Gardens for pointing out this video of the Beijing Olympic Gardens. Better quality stills here.
