This time though I am doing some gardening in between. Today I planted corn and squash and tomato plants. I'm forever hopeful that the critters will let me harvest.
The second tree peony bloomed and is incredibly lacy.. These blooms are about 10" across...
When I fell in love with tree peonies they were extremely expensive.... $75 -$100 a plant and up... Now even though they are still very dear they are much cheaper and $25-$30 will buy one.
My gardening style can best be described as benign neglect. I have always planted what could stand drought, zone 4, deer, heavy clay soil, and neglect and if I planted something and it died, I just planted something else.. eventually I found I had garden of plants of just this type.
Sometimes the plants take matters into their own hands... such as these alliums. I planted ALL of them on the other side of this stone wall. They gradually dropped their seeds over the wall and thrive there....only 2 being left inside the wall. Who am I to argue with an allium..
