I’ve picked and chosen the photos. A lot of the blooming plants have stepped past their best. But I’m still happy.

Showing: Beidermeier columbine, little volunteer viola, peonies, roses, Solomon’s seal.

~Felicite Parmentier are putting out all kinds of new growth
~Jewelweed seems established
~Peonies are overblown and lush
~Roses are toppling over—need to prune
~Southern Nights Tomato is seriously outpacing the others—it’s at least 15 inches tall and flowering.
~Something keeps trying to dig up Marigold seeds
~Strawberries are winding down. I need to watch the runners.
~Spinach = fail. Wonder if it has something to do with the possible nitrogen draft from those un-decomposed sticks under the soil… Or possibly the heat.
~Lettuce is lovely. Black seeded simpson is really nice.
~Peppers are settled into their new transplant homes (both fataliis and habaneros), but not growing substantially, yet.

    I have not seen one little johnny jump up this year. They are usually everywhere and I love that about them.
    Your roses are beautiful. They look so nice and heavy/full. Do they smell as pretty as they look? :-)
    Aren’t Solomon’s seal blooms so dainty?
