Hot, windy day in the garden
I purchased two phlox plants on sale a couple weeks ago. Both were supposed to be red, but one is pink and this one just started blooming and it is white. I still like it, but not quite what I was expecting.
The Russian Sage is blooming. This plant gets huge. It seems to do really well in the midwest.
This is my first year growing Silene Royal Catchfly. It is a hummingbird plant and actually will return in my zone 5 garden. Next year I may have to do a mass planting of it thou, as it seems kind small on it's own.
Tomato plants are sprouting up everywhere. A chipmunk or some other creature must have been raiding my garden last year. I don't have the heart to pull out any tomato plants, so they are growing in a couple flower beds now.
The Cardinal Flower is starting to bloom. This was a favorite with the hummingbirds last year. Hopefully it will attract some more to my garden this year.
