When the kids set their wedding date which is August 14th ... any normal year, that's when most of my perennials would be in bloom; but with this crazy climate change we're going through they all decided to kick in a month early.

Even my neglected sedums in the hypertufa pots that I made are growing:
|john creech sedum|
I hope the rain comes and washes that bird poo off my mushroom for me. lol
|red day lily|
The ants like them too.
|monte negro lily|
My apple trees are full of apples and even the blueberry bush that I tucked into the flower bed is putting on fruit:
|johnny jump up|
|purple astillbe / ostrich fern|
|patriot hosta blossom|
|coral carpet sedum? or possibly murale sedum?|
Hopefully ~ my little piece of swamp moss that I took off a rock down in the woods and planted into an old cream seperator bowl with some cockscombs will still be green....
... As well as my little arbor vitae tree that I started from a seedling from the Arbor Day Foundation 2 years ago.
I love perennial plants ~ put them in the ground and neglect them and they'll return every year. I just wish I could control their blooming time. BUT... since I have no control over the weather I'll enjoy them while I can.
It looks like it's going to be a plastic flower wedding. lol (just kidding Sara!)
Until next time...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.
