Family medical issues have been taking priority over the garden lately, but that doesn’t mean I can’t post some pictures for Bloomsday! I will, however, keep this post fairly pared down.
Along with crowding the roses, this fuchsia is getting overrun with grass. I was in the process of taking care of that, when I discovered both my second yellow-jacket nest of the season and then a giant bald-faced hornet nest (pictures coming soon).
And I will end with this. I did not plant this Red Hot Poker, nor do I particularly want it in this particular location. However, it looks so glorious when it is in bloom that I can never make myself dig it up.
