At least, I could find the snap peas once I dispensed with a few weeds.
This beauty was hiding as well, behind tall phlox.
And then there is my pet Viburnum sargentii 'Onondaga'. These blossoms fascinate me.
Canada thistle frustrates rather than fascinates, except for how it persists despite years of persecution by me. Tonight I spent about an hour uncovering the Rudbeckia and Coreopsis, and I even found some Crocosmia, too, once the waist high thistle had been yanked out by the roots, fragments of which will send up new shoots as soon as my back is turned. Wish I had a goat.
