Today is my 6th wedding anniversary, so though I had a long, informative post planned, I'm saving it for tomorrow. Nyah nyah! Instead you get...
The sweet blossoms of Rouge Vif D'Etampes squash. What girl can garden without THE Cinderella pumpkin?
A lone Johnny Jump-Up (Viola cornuta) that managed to survive one of my urban homesteader idiotic moments.
Pokeweed (Phytolacca spp.) flowers. When the inky berries form, I'll use them for dye.
Ohhhhhh! *rubs her hands greedily* The (directly seeded, late planted) Brandywine tomatoes (Lycopersicon lycopersicum) are finally setting blossoms. I can't wait to taste those first tomatoes, warmed by the sun...
My poor butterfly bush (Buddleja davidii), which was planted last year and transplanted this year. I have a terrible track record when it comes to transplanting bushes, so I'm uber glad this one managed to stick around.
My Achilles heel, the California poppy (Eschscholzia californica), finally abloom. Sweet, sweet success.
