This is the right side of the arbor created by the old ladders. There is a beautiful unnamed grass growing on the left side of it which has purple seed heads and waves so beautifully with any wind. There is a Veronica in front of it.
These are the iris, peonies, Joe Pye Weed and Swamp Milkweed. The milkweed will be almost eaten down to nothing by the end of the summer when the butterfly caterpillars start eating it. The butterfly lays eggs on the underside of the milkweed leaf so that when the egg hatches the babies have plenty of food. We plant this milkweed all over.
Tomorrow I'll introduce you to the circles and 'the cage'.
