I just couldn’t wait for Photo Friday to post these photos. So I called it What’s up on Wednesday:

First Jennie sent me this photo of Dame’s Rocket. She wrote:
“The weed/wildflower is having a very good year. Mom and I loved seeing these thick patches along our ditch banks.”

So my garden had a photo shoot By Annie B Photography in Temperance. Some of you will notice my new vertical wall structure, that wasn’t here on last years tour. Here’s the results:

Almost as it’s end, but this is an Itoh peony


The rose that had not bloomed for 2 years, Finally, buds, and it’s loaded. Yes, it is a David Austin after all.

At Last, rose bud, I planted a Memorial Garden for those who passed from the virus and for our beloved pet Ziggy who passed as well. There are three of these rose in that garden, along with some other great items. It’s also a new addition this year.
