In the garden: Sea of green

A lot of the plants are straining to produce the reproductive organs whose shape and form they have adapted to induce us to plant them, but are not quite there yet. Here my irises are fighting their way upward through the raspberry canes. I may have to move their bed at some point.

Rosa rugosa: The first intimations. Boy, are they thorny and invasive! But also very pretty, and maybe the Japanese beetles will have made themselves scarce, since I've killed off so much of the lawn where their grubs like to winter over.

My little happy filbert, in its third year with two others, so maybe nuts this year.

The raspberry patch, but this is very bad: Not one, but two evil Norway maples. I must have missed them last year; look at the size of them. I've really got to cut the monster one down!
