My flower garden
It doesn't look like much now, but in the coming weeks, this should be a kaleidoscope of color! I don't remember the name of the tall plant in the center, but it has bright red blooms by mid-summer. In the front are Black-eyed Susans, that soon will be covered in bright orange blooms with dark centers.
This is the beginning of a bloom of one variety of Shasta Daisy.
Another variety of Shasta Daisy.
A single bloom on one of the coneflower plants. Later in the summer, these plants will be tall and covered with purple blooms.
I have to plant deer-resistant plants in my front yard. But "deer-resistant" doesn't mean deer PROOF! So I sprinkle grated Irish Spring bath soap and human hair around my plants in my never ending war with the deer!
Watch for later updates on my garden this season.
