Other Milestones

1 and 2.Two echinacea plants in the Center Perennial Rectangle Garden. They look so different from each other. One with long, slender petals…..the other has shorter, wider petals. I have a feeling the first is not fully blossomed out but petals will still be longer and more slender than the second.
3. Broccoli….will have to be harvested tomorrow morning. There might be two that are ready.
4. Pole bean ‘fortex’ flowering.
5. Another ‘fluffy’ poppy has bloomed!
