ASU Medicinal Garden Update

These were taken yesterday, Aug 22, 2013.  Everything looks good except for the empty bed.  That was the beebalm.  I think it got too much sun so hopefully we will start some more and put it in the LONG bed where the Dill, Rosemary, and Ginger is.  The chamomile did not make it either.  :( 

But wow the mint went nuts!  Here we go....first the willow bed... look at those strawberry plants going like gangbusters!

 The Echinacae isn't doing too bad:

 That is the Oregon grape plants back there... still doing great:
 Here is the mint bed!  WOW!  Lot's of flowers so hopefully, lot's of seed:

 A little friend checking out the mint:  :)
 and another friend, can you see it? A little hornet ...I think:
 Chamomile all gone :(  boo hoo!  But that ginger is still there, needs more plants:
 Well hello there, where did you come from??  Hmmm.. I'll have to see about an ID for this pretty lady:
 The Dill beginning to go to seed:
 Ah, the Rosemary looks really good!  We may be able to put a few more plants in there, it looks like a good spot!

 Boo hoo!  All the bee-balm is gone... maybe too sunny???  Needs more plants!
 And this beauty is not in the garden but is native to the ridge, it's a Large Leaf Magnolia that is topping out at the bottom of the fourth floor there, (the pines are still way taller! lol!)
