Flashback Friday ~Missing In Action!
For this week's Flashback Friday I am showing a few things from my flower gardens that have decided to go A.W.O.L this year! We had a strange winter - late spring frosts that I think did a few things in. At least I have pictures to remember them by! I keep hoping some of these are hiding somewhere and will resurface later than normal..still have my fingers crossed. More than a couple roses bit the dust including this beautiful pink one whose name has been lost to me.
My cute little shaggy daisy is missing as well. Sniff Sniff
Bee balm borders on being a weed but I lost two different varieties. A pink and this purple
Another near weed but one I love - rose campion. I have a lighter pink but the neon pink one is gone.
To be honest I have no clue what got this clematis but I had to replant something else in its place.
Cone flowers are a tough one for me to begin with because I just don't have enough sunny prairie like spots in my yard!
And finally - the one that makes me the most sad. My little Hot Lips Salvia that I bragged on for several years as being hardy enough for my zone 7-8ish garden. This is definitely one I will try again! I had actually tempted fate and moved it to a less protected spot so I will be seeking out a tad more cozy spot next time around.
All is not lost though! I have plenty of beautiful plants blooming at the moment. Next post I'll take you on a tour of what IS still around :-)
