......the resident garden alligator! He is a might out of place in these parts but has resided along our stone path for the last few years in seemingly utmost content. He over winters in a box in the basement.
The garden angel is doing a good job at protecting my tender herbs and grasses in the herb garden.
The newly planted lavender is coming along with the red hens and chicks I transplanted from another rock garden. Yes, that is a bowling ball. Anything that can withstand Wisconsin weather and comes at a cheap price is fair game for garden decoration around here. It finds a new use as a planter or garden art.
The Blue Lupin has started to bloom. What a fascinating plant. It blossoms from the bottom up. I love the foilage. It has taken a couple of years to get established but is well worth the wait.
I need to pick the rhubarb and make something delicious. The ancient bridal wreath is in full bloom along the fence. Hey! I heard some thunder in the distance! We are supposed to get some storms rolling through this afternoon and evening. I always worry about the gardens and all the tender plants if we should get hail. Well garden angel......... do your work!
