Happy mid-summer from Wisconsin! Now that we have an additional year in our new space, we’re starting to transform our yard with a variety of new plants as I’ve noted earlier. It’s a slow, albeit rewarding, process for sure; there’s only so much we can do in a day/week/month, particularly when life and weather can intervene. The pace also allows for some thoughtful reflection: I know I’ve re-imagined our layout plan numerous times, but it will gradually fall into place.
We’ve been marveling at all the new flowers- some in the garden and some in the yard, and I wanted to share some Wisconsin summer with you wherever you are…
Runner beans on a tomato cage- something has been snacking on them, unfortunately…
More from the garden- radish flowers
Some Tristan strawberries-to-be (doing exuberantly well in a pot)
Milkweed (We have been pleased to see more butterflies than Monarchs in our yard, as well!)
A prickly pear cactus flower (I somewhat recently found out that prickly pear cacti are native to Wisconsin!)
Non-floral color- a Wisconsin sunset. Good night to all!
