It's been a busy summer and I've been letting the garden fend for itself for the most part. Luckily, the plants know what to do, sometimes a little too well.
Nothing says "June" like lilies.
(I know it's July. Shhhh.)
Speaking of June, here's Hosta 'June', the only hosta I ever bought because I liked it and not because I needed a filler in the shade.
Clematis 'Jackmanii', irrepressible as always.
Humulus lupulus, the hops plant I got at the UIC pharmacy garden a few years ago. Somewhere under that mound is a cute little iron trellis. Hahahaha what was I thinking?!
Someday we'll wake up and find the entire house encased in hops. For now it occupies itself with trying to unscrew the hose from the wall.
Happy Summer, everyone!
