Take Time

To smell the flowers.

And Rosie does just that.

Mass appeal

Mass appeal

Along the front fence of the kitchen garden Rudbeckia blooms in a mass planting.
The North side of my garden fence has been annuals for a few years now, but I’ve decided to extend the beautiful Brown Eyed Susan’s this Spring.
In my Zone 4 garden this is a happy, well placed perennial. It gives a lot of impact with very little care needed. Rudbeckia tolerates our Summer heat, and very easily is divided or started from scattering dried seeds directly into the ground.
Images from the Summer help me in making decisions about upcoming work needed to be done in the garden.
All gardeners know that a garden is constantly changing.
What plans do you have for your gardens this growing season?
