Hi all. Still busy in the garden. Today, I wrestled with New England False Grape vine in my main bed. The roots are entangled with the azalea, so I'll never be rid of it, but trying to keep it at bay at least. The cucumbers are finally taking off! My solo cherry tomato plant, too. I'm on my third planting of sugar snap peas and enjoying the harvest already. Second guessing the hardy kiwi vine, since I've read they can get out of hand and I'm already battling so many other vines...might pull it out and offer it to someone with more room/experience.
My day lilies have joined the symphony of plants. So have the purple cone flowers. The oak leaf hydrangea flowers are beginning to turn from white to pink, starting at the wider part and moving upwards to the tips. The butterfly bush is huge this year and loaded with buds and the mimosa tree, while dying slowly, is still giving me blooms this year! Tough little tree! Hard to see it struggle, but keep on keeping on. Quite the inspiration for me! Good think I have some saplings going to take over when it finally succumbs.
