Good things going on in the garden.

Coreopsis "Baby Sun"
Crocosmia "Lucifer"
Lovely colors in this yarrow, I also have another that is mainly orange.
I planted a bunch of lily bulbs this spring, this is the best bloom so far.
And in the vegetable garden, the strawberries are just about done. But look at this strange creature. It's a Romanesco Broccoli, an Italian heirloom. It tastes much milder than standard Broccoli, which we will be harvesting soon.
Raspberries are ripening, I tend to snack on them when I'm watering.
And we have a wonderful crop of Snow Peas, Oregon Sugar Pod II. When we came back from vacation the plants were loaded, I wish I had taken a picture before we started picking them.
