As you enter my yard this is the side garden along the fence.
The dark leafed plants are chocolate joe pye weed.
They are supposed to attract butterflies.
They didn't read the book because they simply haven't called a butterfly to them in the 6 years or so that we've had them.
You cannot see the moss rose border. They have just been planted and need a good month of neglect to blossom and spread.
After years of having no success in those patches, we tried moss roses last year....and they took.
The small irises were given me by a neighbor from her extras a few years ago. This is their best showing ever.
At the very end of the patch is a Stonecrop that another neighbor gave us last year.
On tap for today:
more mittens to knit
leftover pasta salad, baked beans and burgers from our barbecue
a bike ride between the raindrops.
That's a lot of b's.
So, in true Sesame Street style:
today's post is brought to you by the letter
and the number 6.
