LILLIAN CROOK: WildDakotaWoman — Red Oak House Garden Notes No. 61
Assorted Perennials now in bloom at Red Oak House.
Little Quickfire Hydrangea, a new perennial I’m attempting in a very dry location. The rabbits are munching on the impatiens in the foreground but I seem to have gotten ahead of those varmints this year in this location.
Buffaloberry bush near Cross Ranch State Park. There was a male Red-headed Woodpecker perched here, I swear, first I’ve seen in a while. They spend summers in North America in cottonwood forests and in North Dakota along the Missouri River watershed. I first saw these at Devils Tower National Monument along the Belle Fouche River many decades ago.
Dakota Sunshine Daylily.
