My Garden

I have a rhododendron in a pot which is thriving. Lots of blooms this season.

I have several Sempervivum (Hens and chicks) – this one is just starting to bloom.

I’ve been nurturing this plant all spring – I just wanted to find out what it was – the foliage suggested strawberry – but then the plant got too tall and the flowers are yellow. Turns out it’s a “rough cinquefoil” or Potentilla norvegica – a local wildflower. I’ll leave it alone for this season but pull it out in the fall. I have one other weed growing in another tub – no idea what it is – I have to wait until it flowers to figure out what species I have.
