As you can tell I got my way on the colour of this bike 🙄💕
It was a lot harder than it looks to ride! 🙈 I’ve got a feeling Simon only offered to take a photo of me so that he didn’t have to spend as long on the bike with me bumping into things 🚲😂
These lovely white peonies currently reside in the shaded northern side of a massive lilac tree in the chickens’ yard. ❤️ They don’t seem as happy as they could be so I’d like to move them to a better location. I’ve never transplanted peonies but I understand it’s best to try it in the fall so I’ll wait until then. 😬

🎶 I said I wanna touch the earth, I wanna break it in my hands, I wanna grow something wild and unruly 🎶 (but hopefully not too unruly). #griffithsgarden
Tiny Tim tomatoes 🍅 oh, and powdery mildew 😑
Where do I even begin with the powdery mildew this year? It’s everywhere, and it’s decided to fixate on my tomatoes 👎🏻
Last year the powdery mildew decimated my squash this time of year. By some miracle, the squash has been holding its own this year 👏🏼
Raise your hand if you’ve been personally victimized by powdery mildew? 🙋🏻♀️ (bonus points if you pick up on the movie reference 🌟)
Wild blackberries and a honey bee! 🐝 Today’s prompt for #mygardenthismonth is “wild” and blackberries are the perfect subject for this prompt. Blackberries are a blessing and a curse for many Pacific Northwest gardeners- they are invasive here and I spend a lot of time trying to remove prickly new plants from almost every garden bed I have!
On the other hand, their berries are delicious and I see lots of people foraging for them on roadsides, they are good food for pollinators, and energetically they have a lot to teach us! 🌸
Like bindweed, another garden challenger, there are some positive as well as more trying aspects of this tenacious plant!
And the delicate blossoms are lovely indeed. ✨
Wishing you a wonderful Friday!
I am enjoying this month’s challenge and prompts hosted by @mygardenthismonth @littlehouseinlondon @__itslucy__ @jonpaulclark and @marksandspencerhomepr .
