Last Week In June

I was very busy last weekend so I didn't get a chance to post the pictures that I took of my garden, so I'm doing it today.
Lychnis coronaria. I got it at a local department store nursery several years ago. It is doing a wonderful job of multiplying and looks great with the variegated dogwood.

Pennycress. It is considered a weed by most, but I find it to be a very lovely garden plant. It has 3 stages. In the spring it is covered in tiny white flowers, much like baby's breath. The flowers turn into green coin-like seed pods. And finally there is this stage, the green seed pods mature into golden coins. This plant is an annual, but is easily propagates.

Delphinium. Of course, the delphinium. They are always fantastic.

A wide shot of the main garden. It still needs work, which is good, because I'm not ready to let it go on auto-pilot yet.

But, I must admit that it is lookin' pretty good!
