May's Been a Busy Month in the Garden!

Sorry it's been a month since I posted. I've been incredibly busy, my back has been bothering me again (& that means limited time to sit much less bend and work in the garden), and my DH's started physical therapy for his back which means he's sore and tired and I'm doing more household chores. Having said that, let's venture out to the garden.

The Veronicas are blooming! I love these because they do well in our heat, the bees love them, the butterflies love them, and they require little water once established.

The two pics above show Veronica "Red Fox Speedwell". I've actually had it in this bed for 3 years, but it wasn't in the best of locations, so it never bloomed and it almost died each year. Earlier this spring, I moved it to a spot where it gets lots of sun and isn't being crowded out by other plants and it's loving it! I've had blooms on it continuously for a month now. I love the bright pink color.
