I went to a few garage sales this morning. I am happy to report that I only found one thing to buy.
This yarrow plant (yellow one in the birdhouse planter).
I believe it is Golden Marguerite. As you can see it's very floppy so I cut off all of the flowers before I planted it. Of course I did not throw them away.
I went out and picked some Shasta daisies, feverfew. loosestrife, and a few sprigs of Veronica speedwell.
You know exactly what I did with them, don't you? Yes, they went into the birdhouse vase so I can enjoy them for a few days,
It's been getting dark and thundering which would lead any normal person to think it was going to rain. This has been going on for a few hours, but so far there has been no rain.
We need rain badly. Just look at the dead grass! I trimmed this hedge earlier today.
I also removed all the poppies from this side garden as well as removed a ton of grass from two other side gardens. I've had a pretty productive day already. So I may do nothing else the rest of the day!
I am so glad you stopped by to visit my garden. I garden in lower northern Michigan (zone 5) in far less than ideal conditions. I have too many pine trees, too much shade, too many rocks, herds of hosta-munching deer and rabbits who think my lilly buds are gourmet appetizers. I am by no means an expert in horticulture or garden design--just an amateur with a shovel and a passion. My garden changes daily during the summer and I will be updating frequently.
During the winter months, I blog about my favorite cold-weather hobby--quilting and just my everyday musings.
I hope you enjoy your visit, and that you will come back soon.
