A little Chicago heat and my garden has gone berserk! When I saw my purple clematis had popped open overnight I was drawn to grab my camera and do a quick swing around my flower beds.
My garden has a mixture of shady and sunny areas.
In the shade these delicate bleeding hearts flourish
and thanks to my home made deer repellent my hostas remain intact and munch free.
I split and moved a sad purple iris a few years ago that was struggling to grow in deep shade. I have these gorgeous purple buds popping up all over the place now.
and who doesn’t love a few strategically placed garden containers.
On my quick tour I noticed a gazillion of weeds that need dealing with so I am off out to get a bit of dirt under my fingernails!
