I hope you'll indulge me while I bring you one more garden post until things are farther along early next month.
This is Bernardii II or "Bern" after my BIL as we like to call him. I've never seen such large blossoms, let alone white and before long he will be totally covered with them. He's very long blooming - last year he showed his colors well past the first frost!
Yesterday I did a little planting, which I'm allowed as long as I bend down and get up properly. See the little plants with white flowers between Bern and the climbing rose? They're called "Steppables" meaning you can walk over them and not do any damage. Mr. Squash and I have become quite enamored with all sorts of these varieties! I'm hoping there will be a white carpet there before long!
Turns out my Kiwi is self-pollinating. See the little "beads"? There are lots and lots of these baby Kiwi's growing bigger by the day!
This is the only rose from the original owner of the house that didn't freeze and die two years ago. Before long it will be a mass of yellow and go all summer and fall. The Allysum self sows and will completely cover the ground before long.
This is Barbara the Clematis on her new trellis. She is named after my SIL. Can't wait for the mass of deep red blooms to take off!.
The Allium is doing well once again.
Peonies are just beginning to bloom out. I'll need a bigger cage for them next year.
Mr. Squash has babied this rhody. It was a sickly creature when we moved here 5 years ago. She's nice and healthy now!
I continue to improve in small increments each day. My goal is to be able to rotary cut soon so I can get back to sewing!
