Daisies in the ditch are looking great, too, and I didn't even plant them.

We’re still waiting on Sweet Peas (tap, tap, tap), and many things just sown to sprout. This does not include all the colors in the veg patch, but it’ll do.
Thanks to Carol at May Dreams Gardens for hosting Bloom Day as always. Go visit to check out everyone else’s colors.

    hey, you got your bloom day post up! lovely blooms there… so glad your schubertii has burst forth to share it’s glory with you, and thanks for sharing with us… while i haven’t found an alium that will survive our hot rotting soils, i’m hoping that the scadoxus (blood lily) will soon provide a similar exuberant display… i also admire your aquilegia with tire swing in the background… and the ditch daisies… so simple and sweet.

      “hot rotting soils”…I don’t think the CS Chamber of Commerce is going to like that ;) What grows on the roadsides there?
