The black-eyed susans are starting their annual invasion. This year the phlox are showing signs of spreading too, despite some mildew and munching by the deer. And those coneflowers!
Bees are happy, butterflies are happy, hummingbirds are happy. I’m happy!
Some shots on what is supposed to be a scorcher of a day:
The lovely crocosmia are now in three or four spots, and they need to be divided again this fall (well, some of those baby bulbs dug out with fingers?).
Dividing the amsonia (below) could add the feathery leaf structure to another spot. More phlox (white!) needed in the center of the long front bed. Daisies from the side bed could work too.
And I WILL break up the black-eyed susans into sections, promise!
