Lots of red shades are starting up now. Finally the front yard garden has some pink and red.
The poppies that came from Eleanor, Papaver somniferum, or “breadbox poppy”, have started blooming. Some are singles and some are wildly double.
They self seed all over and I have to weed them out every spring, letting only a few mature. A Nice pink monarda and the pink sweet peas add color, too, as well as a beautiful dark pink hollyhock.
And as promised, here are some pictures of the finished backyard wall.
Also, here is a picture of that new “trellis” that we put up the other day:
My favorite photo was an accident, with a variety of reflections. This is the bay window.
