Earlier this week I was out checking on the progress of the container gardens. The parsley is growing great planted beneath a Roma Tomato.
Believe it or not, this is a salad green that I allowed to go to flower. Today, however, I pulled it out of the pot, tired of it and hoping the pepper will achieve its potential with the added room.
Little peppers growing here. I see something has been nibbling the leaves.
Two fairly nice size peppers. Now for some heat and sunny days for the tomato and pepper production.
Another Roma Tomato plant.

Campanula, white carpathian bells, finally flowering!
Pink Diamond Hydrangea. It is finally taking on a decent shape after a few years in the garden and lots of TLC. It had an odd shape in the pot when I bought it but I was determined to have one of these beauties in my garden. The patience is paying off. Sometimes I wish it would retain the white colour in its blooms, as it is so delicately beautiful but it is rather lovely as it takes on hues of dusty rose/pink later in the summer.
No....I am in denial! It is much too early!!! The peony leaves are already turning their autumn colour, and yes, you do see some chlorosis here. I have treated with chelated iron but may need to do so again.
European Mountain Ash berries are already turning colour and yesterday I saw one cedar waxwing in the garden. They love mountain ash. As the season turns to autumn, the berries become red and swarms of flocking wax wings feast upon them.
