As you know, I hate gardening…but things are looking pretty colorful around here…at least for the time being!
The irises are in full bloom - obviously they require no care at all!
We'll see how long the pansies last...
This 3 tiered planter has recently been planted, so it has a few good weeks til it starts to look pathetic:
By the end of July the petunias will be sparse and leggy:
I have no idea what this is, but it might have a chance of survival:
You CAN'T kill mint, so this has a fighting chance:
The basil will most likely survive all summer, because I pick it constantly...
and the same goes for the parsley:
And this is a miracle - my poinsettias plant from Christmas is still red. In central NY this is rare!
I imagine if I took these very same photos in one month it would give you a good laugh!
