Pretties in the Yard

I'm enjoying the flowers this year. The wisteria was beautiful last month, but I didn't post photos. It was stunning, as usual. Our newly planted Columbine seems pretty happy as it's put on another flower. The variety was labeled as Aquilegia 'Swan Mix'.
I'm also enjoying an Oriental Poppy plant in the planter under the apple tree. We didn't plant this. There is an identical flower on the other side of the driveway and it obviously reseeded itself to a more satisfactory location. I'm not sure which variety it is, but it looks like the Prince of Orange Oriental Poppy.
This is in the backyard. Even though we planted this, I'm not sure what it is. It doesn't look like any of the flowers I actually bought. We got a bunch of seeds and cuttings from a neighbor and some of them must have actually managed to survive our neglect. (After a bunch of digging around on the internet, I think it's a columbine,  Aquilegia vulgaris 'Nora Barlow'.)
Our garden is looking a little wilted. We've been watering it, but the plants just don't seem to be reviving. We shall see if they make it.


  1. Beautiful flowers! Do you do your own gardening? -

    1. Yes, we do our own gardening, such as it is. We've made a lot of mistakes, and we've gone through long periods of neglect, but we're having fun again this year.
