Good...I love these Bleeding Hearts. A reliable plant that faithfully returns each year, without pruning, or feeding, or really much of anything at all. Dicentra spectabilis is also known as Venus's car, Dutchman's trousers, or lyre flower and it does best in a well drained shady spot. It may die back after flowering, but it will be back the next year.
Phidippus mystaceus, is derived from the Ancient Greek mystax, meaning "moustache", which is especially visible on the females The literal translation of Phidippus Mystaceus, however, is "Jumping Mustache." (Photo by GoddessSupport)
brassicas (cabbage, broccoli, and kale.)
Other good things in the garden today... I saw my first male Ruby Throated Hummingbird at the feeder. I planted Jalapeno, Serrano and Yellow peppers, burgundy okra, tomatillo, bronze fennel, some of the Lupines that I started from seed....transplanted some day lilies....save a frog from the clutches of the Welsh Terrier and last but not least GoddessSupport built me a whole bunch of raised boxes for expanding the fenced garden...which means I will be hauling horse compost all week to fill them up. All in all a satisfying day in the garden!
