Frog on my geraniums!How this little guy got here is a mystery. The pot is on my front porch which is kinda high up, he would have had to have hopped up all the steps and then hopped into the pot!

Catch upI haven't entered anything in the last month or so, so I thought I'd ramble on about stuff.
Daylilies have come and gone. The first bloomed June 6 and they are done now.
I didn't notice exactly when, but the Rose of Sharon is blooming.
Both of the Rose Mallow bushes I planted last year have unopened buds. The blue was first. It is planted at the corner of the house. The pink was slow in coming up, about 2 weeks after the blue, but the buds are only a few days later than the blue.
My neighbor (landlord) got a large bunch of annuals from his nephew's job and gave me pick of them, so I planted some in my flagpole garden and made one more hanging plant.

Lightning bugs!First sighting tonight.
If I take the time to listen, I can hear peepers, but not yet crickets.
As to seasonal bugs, the mosquitoes are in control here. They are really bad this year. The neighbor has 3 mosquito zappers out but it doesn't help here. The county has already put something in the ditch to kill the babies and eggs, and they've already been around to spray twice. It doesn't seem to make any difference, well, maybe for a minute, but not much longer than that.

What is on this mini rose?One bud, the flowers should be yellow. This bush had a hard life last year. Bought at Walmart, cleaned up and planted last year, it was beautiful but aphids, I think, totally denuded it, left no leaves. At least it came up and has one flower! The other one I planted with it succumbed to the winter and is dead.

LavenderBought some lavender to plant in the flagpole flower garden. It used to be defined by railroad ties but they were totally rotted and falling apart (have to be very old to rot!) So the landlord took the ties out and made a round raised bed with brick type stones about 6' in diameter. I mixed in 2 cu ft of peat moss today and bought some lavender. It's not planted in there yet.
