This is a far shot of the birch bed, and the ragged peonies are still showing color in the far back.
In the birch bed I have penstemon and two colors of spiderwort blooming.
My first Asian lilies are blooming. This red lily was given to me by a good friend, and it's very strong. It might eventually take over the bed. :-)
In addition to those flowers, I also got my tomatoes caged, and they are blooming too:
And finally, that weed vine, that I'm still so curious about. It's going strong, and you can see that it does vine, much like a pea plant, as a younger stem vines around an older one in this photo:
And here is either flowers, or the fruit already started --I'm not sure which.
Here's a shot of the growing tip with flowers/fruits:
I'll probably pull the vine pretty soon, just to be on the safe side. :-)
