The poppies that are blooming are way down at the end.
Look at the grass. It's already beginning to turn brown. We need rain!
All the beautiful creeping phlox and ajuga will be gone very soon. I wish it would last all summer, but at least it will stay a nice dark green color.
It's kind of interesting taking a picture up through the poppies.
These poppies are all doubles. I like the singles much better. I find the doubles too big and heavy which causes them to fall too easily. As soon as we get a rain, they will be lying on the ground.
The smaller rockwall garden has some spring phlox (dame's rocket) growing with the poppies. It's really quite a weed and I have tried to remove it from most of the gardens. I do like the purple/orange color combo, though, so I've left it in this area. There is a ton of it growing behind this wall so there will be lots of purple in the next few days.See the rusty wheelbarrow in the background?
It's sitting where I left it last week after dumping a load of weeds. I thought it looked rather artistic, like a piece of garden sculpture. :)
I have more flowers growing in back of these rockwalls than I do in front of them. When weeding I toss shovel fulls of stuff over the wall. Every now and then I find something that I didn't mean to throw out and I just go around back and dig it up and move it back to the gardens.
