|MORE GLOBE MALLOW|
Seeing as how it's mid-June :)
|ARE YOU SPOTTING A TREND, HERE? :)|
Such is the life of a bizzy gardening gal.
A bizzy, out of shape, gardening gal... who limps into the house at the end of a long day. Far more interested in a well-deserved glass of Pinot Noir than a blogging session.
Waging war on weeds is hard work!
Waging war on ants is painful work.
First up-turned rock in the garden and a swarm of ants came racing up my arms. (Biters.)
I was soooo disappointed with that. I thought I had successfully bumped off the queen. By watering their holes incessantly. Dousing them with baking soda and vinegar. Which created a mini-volcano and nobody warned me about one.. Cayenne pepper. You name it; I've tried it... And, failed.
But, they're back. A gigantic colony, as annoying as ever. Now, I'm resorting to dish soap. (Fingers crossed this works.)
Back to Memorial Day.
Which is still worth yapping about.
|Our vintage camper.|
While driving to our camping spot, I saw a gigantic field of brilliant orange, slowed down...
Exclaiming... what in the world?? Turns out it is Globe Mallow. More plentiful than I have ever seen.
Are you in love? Me, too!
* Globe Mallow is a very well-behaved wildflower / perennial that grows nicely in your garden. Munro's Globe Mallow (Sphaeralcea) is super waterwise, and stunningly beautiful.
