Begun way back in the mist of time by Kim of Frog Ponds Rock and now continued by me, with a drastic relaxation of rules.
Originally meant for showcasing old photos lost on your files, never seeing the light of day, the meme has morphed into photos of your choice, new or old, good or not-so-good, anything you please, but nothing rude please.
Elephant's Child always participates, and her pictures are always worth seeing.
Back in the garden again, a different type of aeonium, smaller and lighter than the black I showed you last week, which is also in this photo just on the left, the darker longer leaves. This area is almost entirely aeoniums
a cascade of green
my mint is doing very well, I must remember to pick and dry some before the earwigs get it
the hoya is recovering after being neglected most of the year, shiny new leaves popping out all over
the white geranium has been chewed by something, probably earwigs, they're quite plentiful this spring
my catmint is also doing well, in spite of the pot being home to an ant nest. I'm currently trying to dry some of this to fill my daughters catmint tube, for Missy to play with. Lola just gets fresh cut sprigs with the stems a little crushed to release the scent, she rolls around in it, rubs her face on it, chews it a bit.
I have a new windspinner, this one is plastic, the others were fabric stretched over wing shapes, I hope this one lasts a bit longer. Eventually, I'll save some $$ and get bigger metal ones. Little kids walking by with their grandma love these.
I planted some red yarrow, but haven't watered it enough, it's struggling a bit, but hanging in there
I also planted some dill, I love the scent of this on a hot summer day and eventually hope this spreads through the bare patches via self-seeding. it should bring plenty of bees.
Right now though, there is nothing to see, the feathery foliage has been eaten down to the ground by something, so I placed an empty soft drink bottle over where the roots are/were and I hope it will recover.
How's your garden growing?
