Sunday walk-around

Drizzly Sunday morning. Good weather for some somewhat-soft shots of what’s going on around the garden these days.

I tend to take the asters that grow in the ‘unmanaged’ areas for granted. But occasionally I spot one that’s ‘garden-worthy’.

The bed where I have all my colchicums (from Cold-Climate Kathy and other places) has filled in a lot. I’ll rationalize that I like them better when you have to look for them, rather them coming up ‘nude’ with nothing by mulch around them.

‘Stay-cation’

Pretty low key. Caught up on some weeding and reading. Mowing and putting a new weed-whacker to work. Biggest news was Rosie (Elly’s Airstream) returning from Franks Trailer Works in Baltimore with a new floor and other structural improvements.

With Rosie sitting at least 6 inches higher, Jade found a new shady spot to hang out on hot days.
