This is a long view of the barrel garden.
Here's a closeup.
Portulaca is blooming in one hanging basket.
Over on the picnic table, this pepper is half ripe.
Petunias are blooming there too.
This one is on the patio.
Japanese beetles are munching on the Manchurian apricot. At first I just saw something buzzing there through the window, wondered if it might have been bees, but there was no swarm. When I saw the holes in the leaves, I thought Japanese beetles. Going outside confirmed it.
This is the septic garden.
Carnations are blooming.
The yuccas are almost done blooming.
Their pods are getting plump.
Shasta daisies are budding in the white garden.
The morning glories have been eaten, but moonflowers are sprouting. I found more morning glory seeds at a store, but not more moonflowers.
This is the wildflower garden.
Prairie onions have heads.
Northern sea oats are putting out seeds.
This echinacea is blooming.
Here is another with some wild onions.
