On A Very Sunny Day in the Garden!

Have to Pick the Second Crop of Raspberries Before the Stink Bugs Get Them!
'Silver King' Artemisia Almost Ready to Cut!
The 'Mt. Fuji' Phlox is Beautiful, Fragrant and No Mildew!
The 'Fairy' Rose Keeps On Blooming!
The 'Fireworks' (Goldenrod) Have Started!
In The Front Garden, the Hostas Have Been Beautiful!
We have been lucky and lush in the gardens this year.  We just got 2.7 inches of rain in the gauge overnight!  The sun is out at the moment, but we are supposed to get more rain later!  Hope the forecast is wrong.  Just wanted to show you some of the standouts in our garden this year.  Hope you are having a great day wherever you may be.  What is doing wonderfully (besides the weeds) in your garden?  Talk to you soon.

I'm curious what do you do with the artemisia after you harvest it? I planted some this year for the first time but don't have a use for it. Can it be dried for wreaths, maybe? Thanks LVL!

Yes, wreaths, Barbara and I made this nifty artemisia tree one year. Here is the link for that post I did a couple of years ago.

They look very tastey

The raspberries are pretty good, Peggy! Hoping to get enough for a batch of jam! Have a great weekend! xo
