blooms in the greenhouse garden
Spent 5 hours Saturday weeding in the greenhouse garden. Stopped occasionally to enjoy the flowers and snap a few pictures.
This is one of my oriental poppies growing in the middle of a large patch of lemon thyme. The nice thing about this is that once the poppy dies back, I can cut it down and the thyme fills in the empty spot.
This is Verbascum in front of a rose bush. I have no idea the name of the rose. It's from a shrub rose that was my great-great grandmother's. Smells wonderful, grows like a weed!
I took this picture a few years ago when the ajuga was in bloom. I planted a very small bit of ajuga in 1994 and look at it now. When someone offers you a pot of "extra" flowers they dug up - BEWARE! There's a reason they're giving it away.
