Mystery Solved on Memorial Day

Hello!  I have been away from Garden on Sherlock Street for a bit.
With all the rain we received in May, I didn't even have to think about asking anyone to water for me.
The vegetable garden is doing well and the flowers are just putting on a show.

A while back, I discovered a plant that I did not put in.  My first thought was a poppy, but it had very ruffled leaves.  I let it be and waited.


Then, last week, flower buds started forming.  I was sure it was a poppy, but one much larger than I've ever had in the garden.


Fittingly, on Memorial Day, it bloomed.


A beautiful poppy.  I'm guessing a bird gifted my garden with it.


I hope to get the June tour photos ready soon.  Be well and I'll see you in the garden.

Tall Daisies


The daisies along the front walk have decided to join the show.  They are extra tall this year.  Must be all the rain.

Like A Patch Of Sunshine

The rain has made things grow like crazy.  We are so green it is unbelievable.
This includes our tiny lawn, except for one thing...we have a patch of wild snapdragons in the lawn that I just cannot mow down until they've had their initial bloom.  Here they are like a patch of sunshine.

Alley View

The irises and dame's rockets are really making the alley look good this spring.


A sidewalk runs from our trash bin storage area to the patio.  The vegetable garden is on the left with bachelor buttons and larkspur on the right.  The rains have made all the plants so tall this spring.

Walking Onions


My father gave me some seeds from his walking onions late last summer.  They are doing very well.  I now know that I should have planted them where they would have more space.  Oh well.  I'll move them to a better spot later this year.  This link has a lot of info on walking onions.
