The Bayside Community Garden continues to flourish in perfect summer garden weather: bright sun followed by bursts of occasional rain.
This photo of my garden bed shows Foxglove (left -- flowering), catnip (front), bee balm (right), mint (in the colored containers) and towering Feverfew.
A drawing of the Foxglove blossoms.
The bee balm, which I originally thought had not wintered over, proved me wrong with these gorgeous red blossoms.

A view of flowering Soapwort (ugly name -- gorgeous flowers). Soapwort leaves have been used as soap since the Renaissance.
Soapwort blossoms will surprise you with their delicate perfume.
First-year gardener Michel grew some fine irises this year.
