Today in the Garden...

The Crepe Myrtles are blooming. I think the clusters of flowers this year are the biggest I've ever seen them.

There are 5 of the trees planted in a long row; they were here when we bought the property.

'The Fairy' rose has the sweetest little flowers. I love this bush. Today is my sister's and her husband's wedding anniversary, so here's wishing them a happy anniversary and I'm dedicating this picture to them.

How do you like Kirstin's new "friend"!?!?

A BIG bumble bee was visiting the Catnip this morning. Even though this is definitely not a showy plant, I really like it. And so do my cats!

And, evidently, the bee does, too.

Have a beautiful day!

Beautiful flowers, and when they appear in such clusters, they really attract attention. Beautiful pictures of bumble bee and Kirstin's new friend

How do you keep the cats from destroying your catnip? I tried growing catnip but the neighborhood cats kept rolling in it, so it could never take off. I love "The Fairy" as well. Such a hardy rose!

I think you're right about the crape myrtles. They are particularly nice this year. Nearly everything seems to like the extra rain we had last fall and winter. Love your white -you see pink the most around here.
