Fox in the Garden

A fox ran through the garden today.

Glad to see that one is still on patrol.

Hellebores

Fascinating interview about one of my favorite plants.

I wanted to call our garden Hellebore Haven, but it turned into Aster Disaster.

I love the native asters, some of which are reliably hardy here and are great pollinator plants.

They can be aggressive spreaders, which I consider to be a positive attribute.

Rudbeckia 'Little Henry'

I would love to try this.  We have 'Henry Eilers' and it gets floppy.
