Last evening I had a chance to get into the back garden and tidy up for summer. Amazingly, many of the spring annuals lasted all through June. I wanted the larkspur in particular to have time to reseed before I pulled them out. Now all tidy, the garden is looking much better. Typically I would be whacking plants back hard to give then a good chance at rebloom from mid-August into fall, but this year things seem late and I did not see the need. I did remove an annual red coreopsis, much to Jerry's dismay, but I left some and that one was smooshing my salvias.
