Pleasant Plants

The garden is ready to be planted, and as you can see, so are the plants. These are organic tomatoes, peppers and cabbage patiently waiting to be put in the ground. It has been so warm lately that I feel like we are behind on our planting, but in reality we aren't. We are actually ahead!

Squash and more tomatoes.

The snowball bush is doing marvellous this year! It was loaded with blooms, although they were on the small side.

One of the larger blooms.

I crept under the snowball bush to see if there were any interesting shots to be had. It looked like a little tropical jungle under there.

It had rained recently so that added to the effect.

Ants doing their part. The peonies won't bloom without them.

The crane'sbill was gorgeous this year.

And look at the applemint! It is going to town! I am going to (one of these days) cut it all down and then hang it to dry. It will make some delicious tea.

The iris plants are doing well. And they smell magnificent, as always.

Comfrey. A very useful herb. It helps to knit the bones together when one has had a break/fracture.

The corn is probably twice this height now. It is growing so fast, between the heat and some rain now and then.

Another birthday present! But this one is from my cousin. Wasn't that sweet of her to give me a set of hand carders? I am looking forward to using them.

Dad picked these up recently. They are pretty neat, aren't they? They would come in handy for washing/soaking fiber. The bucket on the porch is an antique mop bucket. It is well made, and quite heavy.

I have no idea what type of flowering bush this is. I was going to my LYS and it was leaning over the sidewalk, practically asking to be photographed. It smelled great too. Anyone know what it is? Oh wait half a second, I believe this is a Weigela! If that is the case it is a huge one!
Nice color too. :)
