Garden interlude

Tomato season has begun.

I don't eat them, but I love growing them! (and if Dave can't eat them all, it's never hard to find someone who wants them.
The blackberries are getting riper!!!
But the dread fungus has hit! (those brown woody looking bits). I've sprayed them down, so hopefully I've nipped it in the bud.

Have I shown you the Cardinal flower in full bloom yet?
Until I found this at Home Depot this year, I'd never heard of Cardinal flower... but not that I have...
...I love it! It's so vibrant.

My Campanula is covered in buds...
... and hopefully this year it blooms. It budded up like this last year, but nothing happened.

One of the new Cone flowers is going to bloom soon...
... but it's hard to tell if it will be yellow or white.

The roses have on a bit of a hiatus for the last few weeks, but they are starting to bloom again...
... and Blue Girl is just so pretty!

The Mister just raided a friend's garden who is on vacation and brought home the most amazing veggies. They were still warm from the sun and they made the most spectacular salad.
That rose is gorgeous. I have never seen one irl that color.

Blue Girl IS lovely. What a unique color.

I didn't know that the brown bits on blackberries were a fungus! See ...every day you learn something new. LOL

We are on our second go around with the tomatoes here much to our delight. I clipped them all back in late June and now they are producing again. Those Cardinal flowers are so pretty....we have the birds but not the flowers.

Gorgeous Rose!!! oh my!
IM waiting for my flowers to BOUNCE back. Best so far are the zinnias at the far end of the driveway . I have one bucket of red inpatients that are simply thriving! Everything else is s bit wimpy. LOVE looking at your flowers! I will say my wasp paper bags have been a huge success. No wasps and they are still hanging out there despite downpours of rain. My pollinator houses are successful too. More and more holes filling up and bees hatching. Zach says we should put a time lapse camera out to catch the teeny tiny bees when the hatch
