Sometimes you have to stop and smell or take time to enjoy the flowers!
Baptisia australis, blue false indigo.

Veronica spicata Royal Candles (spike speedwell)
‘May Night’ sage, in the salvia family
The sage is often in the shade, but gets some sun in the morning. The yarrow is just starting to turn yellow.
‘Blue Hill’ sage, max frei geraniums, and penstemon digitalis (foxglove breadtoungue)
Digitalis purpurea foxglove
The birds hang out on the tomato cages near the bird bath. The clematis, virginia creeper, and soon the tomato vie for climbing space on the fence and cages.
The garden is planted. The zucchini, which just popped out of the ground, the cucumber, and the zinnias will fill up the open space on the right.
Enjoying fresh greens each day
Ajuga and coleus
Blue fescue ornamental grass. In the background are cone flowers, coreopsis verticillata ‘Zagreb’, and asclepias incarnate – swamp milkweed. Those flowers should be blooming before long. The Russian sage is trying to pop up everywhere, too….
I just planted the little bluestem grass on the right, and the sunflower seed I planted is getting going on the left. I have another little bluestem grass that is more established and the grass looks bluer. The great part of this grass is the orange/red color in the fall.

The day I took this picture Dan said: “This is the most beautiful day of the year!”
Iris. I think I got rid of my blue irises because I really like these red ones best.
We pulled out Rick’s old tent, that we have never used on a trip, and it looks like it will work for Stephanie’s first camping trip.
Last weekend, on our walk around Lake Katherine, we watched this turtle laying her eggs. She was on a mission and dug a hole on the side of the path where people were walking and running.
