Pencil pod golden wax bean flower.  You have to look for these flowers, but they are fun to find.  The peas are also blooming.

This is the first coleus I have planted.  It says it can handle sun and part shade, so I hope it survives in this sunny spot.

  3. Beautiful – you’ll have to tell us if you get any butterflies! We planted Asclepias, too, and it’s about to bloom after 3 years.

  4. Nice work! I enjoy discovering new plants I didn’t know before…also enjoy reading about composting, native plants, and more…thanks.
