My perennial garden is currently sporting a predominantly yellow color scheme.
All of that yellow is coming from the swamp sunflowers which are currently enjoying the spotlight. It's actually a bit of a jumbled mess out there as the sunflowers got so tall some of them have toppled over on top of the autumn blooming daisies. I have read that you can cut them down by half mid-summer to prevent them from reaching such heights. But, I never seem to think of it at the right time so come early fall I have this crazy wild garden going on.
I tend to see it as a happy mess.
This season I planted some morning glories in the bed. They are now twining their way through the jumble. As you might guess, I am totally smitten with the blue and yellow combo.
The bees seem pleased too.
Along the front of the bed the Lamb's Ear isn't affected in the least by the encroaching Swamp Sunflower. In fact, I don't think the leaves on my plants have ever been this large.
It won't be long until these perennials are done blooming.
For now, I plan to enjoy their crazy and colorful show.
Here I go again complaining.
What the heck is going on with Blogger??
Last night I gave up on waiting for my blog list to re-appear. I made a new one. I hope it's still there and if I've missed adding your blog, please let me know. Trust me it wasn't on purpose. I'm adding them as I think of them.
Thinking all was back to normal I sat down to do this post. It was nothing but problems from the start.
Tried to make a link... fail.
Added an image and then made it "ex-large" like I've been doing for years... lost my cursor.
Clicked on the image again... lost my image.
Put my image on again... repeat the above.
Somehow found the cursor, but it couldn't be moved where I wanted it. Hence, the pesky paragraph below. I tried and tried to erase it, but since I couldn't place the cursor where I wanted to begin backspacing... there it sits. Argh!!!!
It seems I might be able to post smoothly if I didn't add photos. However, that is not the way I prefer to blog.
I suspect these problems are stemming from that notice having to do with HTTPS. Although from my very limited knowledge of that, it doesn't seem like it should be causing these issues.
Don't they know that a lot of us aren't technical wizards?
So, you see my perennial garden isn't the only jumbled mess around here.
If you've made it this far, thanks for listening.
Warning: pesky unremoveable paragraph below:
I have no idea what this post will look like once it's published. Apologizing in advance.
This season I planted some Morning Glories in the bed.
They are now twining their way through the jumble.
