Southside path efforts continue–and high summer flowers arrive

The southside path has a lot of potential, but I haven’t quite figured out what to do with it yet. It’s better now but still needs work. This is how it looked on May 1 this year. You can see the daffodils are starting, the forget-me-nots are tiny, and daylilies just emerging:

Below is the same scene at the end of May–the poppies are just ready to bloom, and have taken over the path.

???????????????????????????????Then on June 17 I cleared out the poppies and widened the path and put in a low wall.

Here is how it looked on June 20:

Then a few days ago I widened it even more by pushing back the daylilies:

The other garden news is the arrival of the high summer bloomers: echinacea, monarda, daylilies, and yarrow. Here are some pictures of them:????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????july garden 039
