Speaking of pests, resident-lawnmower-man found our strawberry thief. He watched the squirrel sneak under the carefully placed mesh to get his strawberries and then sneak out again. Some weighty rocks will now be placed on the loose edges of the mesh. What a pest! If our dog was loose, I think we could get rid of that strawberry thief, but alas, we keep the dog contained in a fence.
|Sweet Williams (Dianthus barbatus), a biennial flower that self-propagates very happily.|
|Large raised bed getting full with perennials. The Siberian irises have just finished.|
|Sloped little rock garden full of thyme and Dianthus deltoides, both in bloom. A few yellow perennial foxgloves have popped up here and there.|

|I love the little mounds of blue and white Campanula carpatica. They get covered in blooms. The burgundy shrub is a Japanese barberry and the silver spikes are Lamb's ears (Stachys byzantina).|
