I wanted to give everyone an update on some of the wonderful things happening in our garden this year. For starters... the iris my mom gave me last year bloomed, and... drum roll... IT'S WHITE! (not purple... hehe) Here is the first bloom. Enjoy photo #1.
Second, I wanted to show you the amazing rose that has been here since we moved in. It is starting to put on some size, oblivious of my neglect. It has wowed me this year. Enjoy photo #2.
Third, cute little ladybug hanging out in the flowers. Just had to include it. Enjoy photo #3.
And last, but not least, is the Sunchokes that I planted about 2 months ago. I have a feeling they will be exactly what the package listed... 6 to 9 feet high! Enjoy photo #4.
Well that about does it, I have posted a ton of new photos to my calendars if you want to see more. Happy Gardening.
I posted in the forums as well, but we are hoping to find a few Jerusalem Artichoke or Sunchoke tubers left over from last year. Anyone who would be willing to send us just a few, 4-5 small ones would do, would be greatly appreciative. We would love to try out this plant.
I have been reading about them quite extensively and have found them very hard to find here in Nebraska, even though there were many articles on our local extension website.
