Sunny and beautiful here, but I'm worried about my poor wildflower garden. I was operating on the premise that I'd let it all grow and then pull up the weeds once they revealed themselves as weeds. I do have a smattering of lovely orange flowers. But I'm worried that the plants I thought were poppies are actually weeds, and if that's the case, I'm royally screwed.
Like, just mow the whole thing down and dig it up screwed.
The peonies, which I adore, are at the very end of their glory, looking mostly rather bedraggled, the lily of the valley are done, but the petunias out front and in window boxes are doing fine, and my lavender looks GREAT! Planted it almost 3 years ago, first year that it's looked this nice. (Three different varieties, one with deep purple flowers, one almost white, one lavender colored.)
Yes, littlek, how do you get reimbursed?? I have a great nursery nearby and am lusting after any number of things, but went about $20 over budget by spending $50 on annuals this year and don't have an extra penny. I really want to get some ferns to balance out the lavender; their explosion this year, while welcome, really weighs things to the South. I'd love to put some ferns over on the North edge.
My containers are doing well! I'm happy about that, anyway.
