Little Lamb hydrangea forming its flower buds. So far so good ! There is a hosta peaking out with its own flower stalk .. and a , yes ... yellow daylily on the other side ... the peach astilbe on the right were gorgeous when they we freshly blooming.
A raised bed is a tricky item .. it gets dry very quickly .. I have to keep an eye on it .. but being next to the rain barrel ... that helps !
