I was annoyed at the overgrown cotoneaster on the mezzanine level that locked the view of the pink geraniums from the kitchen window. I pruned back half of the plant. The front slope garden has a few more candidates for this treatment.
The large Mexican daisy in the back corner garden has mostly spent blooms. I cut them back in hopes of another round of blooms. The California fuchsia is back for a second season. The delicate pink fuchsia flowers are a joy, and it seems well adapted to its container.
The maida elegans is beginning to bloom and is perhaps not a fall bloomer after all. The correopsis is at full growth but the blooms are sparse. Late June should be its time to shine, and it is resplendent in its own willowy way.
