it's getting hot in here...

So it looks like we are going to go straight from mild spring to the dead heat of summer. Fabulous! There's nothing I like better than sweating profusely, 24/7.
But hey, my graden likes it, especially after the rain the other day. Things are looking good...

I bought this little yellow lovely at the farmer's market today. It's a type of poppy, and it's a shade perennial. And it's native! I forget what it's called, but I will look it up.
I have some little alliums popping right now. I love aliums, even though i really wanted to move these particular guys and they went and bloomed on me, I won't mess with a blooming plant. Maybe they sensed that...
My irises are spectacular! The color is a very deep violet and I love love them. I wish they would bloom longer. It's their only fault.
Hi Bullet! Haven't seen you for a few days...
A glimpse around the pond. (Note the wooden  'Sue' clog that I bought at the antique market filled with little pink blossoms.) Everything is doing so well, so I have to go and change it all! Until the heat, I had been busily digging up and moving things around. NOw it's ninety-eleven degrees and stuff is blooming, so I quit. Plus, I gravely injured myself with a shovel last week and I'm not over the trauma. Gardening is dangerous!
Stay cool peeps!

I'm so against this heat, but I do like your clog!

that clog is cool, your yard looks lovely. mine looks like an overgrown mess and it's most likely going to stay that way. especially if this heat continues...

Put the shovel down before you kill somebody! ;) Your garden, my friend, looks lovely! The clog is perfect-just as you knew it would be! Me thinks we need to beat this heat with a cold coffee soon!
