This week in the garden, better late than never!

I've had some trouble getting out into the garden to take pictures this week, but finally weather is cooperating, and I'm home to take photos!  The oak leaf hydrangea is putting on a show, and the little peachy threadleaf coreopsis (Sienna sunset) is full of blooms as well.   My excitement comes from something else in the garden: my berries are starting to ripen!  Nothing in the world tastes like black raspberries, right off the bush,  warm from the sunshine!  My red currants look like tiny rubies, shining in the morning light.  It has been so very unseasonably HOT, I'm really surprised to have much of anything looking good.   We did finally get some rain last night, albeit accompanied by a hailstorm, but I guess beggars can't be choosers, right?   

I'm joining Candy at The Little Round Table for This Week in the Garden.  I hope she doesn't mind that I'm a little late to the party!


  1. Good Morning Elaine!

    Lovely views of the garden! Currants .... one of my favorites. Thanks so much for sharing the progress in your garden this week!

  3. Sun-ripened berries...delicious!

  4. Oh, how fun your garden looks! Fruit and flowers! Two of the best things in life!
