Some Gardening Photos

Falen posted some photos of her garden, so now I have a serious case of garden envy and am posting a few of mine.  This is the front walkway border.  It faces south and is the main flower area.  This is how it looked towards the end of May, when the raspberry peonies and hybrid sage were in bloom.

This is how it looks now. Unfortunately, the lilies are done. I had some gorgeous pink, orange and yellow ones.  The butterfly bush (tall plant by the flag) has a few blooms on it but I expect it will be prolific quite soon.  The sage just finished blooming, but I trimmed it back and it will rebloom.  Everything has been getting lanky in this heat and I've been cutting it all back severely.

Petunias and gerbera daisies on the porch.

Some snapdragons from along the driveway, and the blueberries and raspberries we picked at a local farm on July 2nd.
The first harvest from our Cub Scout garden. No, that beautiful, tan, dark-haired woman is not me, but Sara, who allowed us to use her yard for the garden.  I don't have a good photo of the garden, as it's just sort of a messy plot by the road, but I've been quite surprised at how well the plants are growing.  Sara and her son have been taking excellent care of it for us.  It's been hard to get all the scouts in our den together to tend it regularly.
