Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

New Blooms


Here are some blooms that didn't make it for Bloom Day.
Lupine -blooming for the first time. It was almost devoured last year by the ground hog.


Foxglove. From one plant many. I have transplanted the seedlings all over. The deer and ground hog don't touch it.


A golden iris I didn't know I had. I will have to move it because it is dwarfed by the bronze ones were it is.

Deep purple and lavender iris with multiple blooms on each stalk.


Knock out rose is knocking itself out blooming.


The snow peas in the garden are finally blooming.


Can you see a pond there? I've got to pull some cat tails - they are taking over.

Hooray for the lupine. Mine is just beginning to bloom here too. It is covered with aphids but seems to be doing ok anyways.
