I just realized this morning that I haven't blogged lately. Between housework, and more happily, yardwork and enjoying time with family and friends, I've lost track of time. Also, I should add, go see Take a Bite at the Edmonton Fringe! It's excellent, well-written, and the actors are amazing.
I've been enjoying the garden this week, as the mosquitoes have backed off a bit (still nowhere near gone, but much better). My annuals are blooming, and I thought I'd share a few photos.
This is the first time my attempts to grow sunflowers has actually resulted in a blooming sunflower! Usually they are eaten by rabbits, are started too late or too early, or sited poorly. I can see this one from my kitchen window, and it makes me smile every time I look at it.
Well, almost anywhere. It turned out to be a poor choice to surround the oak tree with snapdragons for two reasons:
1. There's not enough space in the bed for this to look tidy (there should definitely be another foot of mulch on the far side of the snapdragons so it doesn't merge visually with the lawn).
2. The snapdragons are currently taller than the oak, which is just too silly.
