In Honor of Becky's Garden

Cardinal Flower

I can't remember what...but it's a type of Geranium

My favorite lily...Stella

Fuzzy bumble bee in the comfrey flowers.

Comfrey plant fallen down after a rain storm.

Sour Cherries starting to get ripe.

Aw, I feel so loved! you are such a sweetie!
What a terrific shot of the bee in flight, how awesome is that?!!
My Stella d'oro's look crappy this year, I think they need to be divided.
Don't you love how the comfrey just falls down to the ground?
Oooooh, such pretty flowers, made my day!

The comfrey flowers are so pretty; I've never had one of those. But, does it get right back up after a rain?

Nope...they fall down on their own about three times a growing season, and they regrow from the center. They grow about shoulder high (4 feet or so), bloom, fall down (usually by the weather, but they fall down on their own if nothing knocks/blows them down) and regrow from the center. Once they fall down, I cut them off. The new growth is already 6-8 inches high in the center. I'll try to take a picture of that later today. Originally this plant was used as fodder (cow feed in the silo) and the farmers could harvest a field of it 3-4 times a year.
