The garden is movin' and shakin' which means I'm taking pictures, and freaking out my neighbors. They don't even pretend to understand me anymore. They just tell me that I'm weird, and I revel in it.
Here's the debutante dame. Planted 2 years ago, this is the first summer she's decided to stick out her bearded tongue and bloom.
And her companion is a backward homage to Georgia O'Keefe. Not a poppy, but a peony can stand in place I think. Right?
I launched a grand experiment this year and introduced a tomato plant into 6 of my 16 containers. Hoping for a bumper crop...
I always make room for the volunteers -- or rather -- they help themselves. They are back this season, just on the edge of the sidewalk chalk drawings.
Come back tomorrow and meet the Asters.
