When I did get the weeding done, I found a weed that I wasn't sure what it was and when I did some checking found out it was poison ivy; great that's all I need is to break out from that, but luckily I didn't. I think I have all of the poison ivy out. Pray that I do. But I still have lots of thistle out there that is starting to bloom. AUGH!
I do have to admit that the Purple Coneflowers are absolutely gorgeous. They are blooming prolifically. The Tickseed Coreopsis are doing good also. The Blanketflowers are kinda sparse this year. This fall I think I will plant some White Coneflower seeds in one area that needs something growing for the summer and fall.
In the front flower bed, which is all shady, the ferns that I planted this spring are growing wonderfully.
