COLUMBINE – Marilyn Armstrong

FOTD – June 20, 2019 – Columbine

While they were so busy blooming, I took pictures. I think the next time I look — tomorrow if it isn’t pouring rain — I will see the beginning of the blooming of the daylilies.

I think if there had been a bit more sunshine, they would be blooming already. I don’t know if the roses will bloom this year. We cut them all the way down and it may take them a season to grow back.

I’m sure they will grow back. They are much too stubborn to die.

        1. We’ve got some stuff growing in the garden I KNOW I didn’t plant. Some of it is wild — asters and Queen Anne’s lace … but there are other flowers I haven’t yet identified. I think all the wind blew the seeds all over the place. And maybe all the birds brought some new ones to the garden.

  1. Lovely columbines. Though they don’t last long. Mine are all seedheads now. As for your rose, you can cut them back to as little as a foot high, and they should come roaring back. I read they like bonemeal, and it’s certainly done the trick for one of my very ropey old climbing roses.

    1. We cut ours down as far as we could — maybe a foot and half except where they were so entwined with other plants we couldn’t separate them. I’m sure they will come back. You can’t keep the barbed wires down!
