Thursday in the Garden

This is getting huge. Grandpa gave it to us and we can't wait to see it bloom. We have one planted in a pot down at the Hummingbird Cottage and Mommy has another one waited to be planted this Fall. We are trying to decide where to put it.

We thinks this is Yarrow.

Little wildflowers.

Verbena, Mommy needs to weed this bed badly.


Indian Hawthorne.

Grancy Greybeard.


Yellow Iris

And a closeup of the Grancy Greybeard. Bet you can't guess why they call it that? ;>) ~ATCAD


  1. You have such an organized garden! Is that last also called goatsbeard?

    1. We don't thinks so. We had never heard it called that so we did a google search and a completely different plant came up. Some of it's nicknames are Fringe Tree, Old Man's Beard, Grancy Graybeard but it's Latin name is Chionanthus virginicus

  2. I think your little wildflowers are feverfew, which mama had in her garden in LA and it is used to make a tea to bring down fever but I'm not sure you drink it. I think you dip a cloth in it and apply it to the forehead. But what do I know, I'm just a cat!

  3. Such a pretty garden :)
    Bet it is very calming.

  4. We think we will stay away from tickseed, that doesn't sound good!

  5. Love your garden! So many pretty and interesting things!

  6. Wonderful garden!!

  7. We think that the yarrow *is* Yarrow!
    We have some of that too...growing as a wild plant...self seeded by birds we think.

    The bearded plant is fun:)
