Appearing Now In My Garden
The blossoms seemed to have gorged on the spotty sunshine and are ready to unfold any day. The Daphne x burkwoodii and Korean Spice Viburnum permeated the air with a heavenly scent and will soon be replaced by Dianthus ‘Firewitch’ and ‘Bath’s Pink.’ I divided all the iris last fall as the crowns were dying, and I expect them to make a showing by week’s end along with the baptisias, amsonia, bachelor buttons, and lavender–they will give the garden a purple glow for sure . The allium giganticum were so short–shorter than the other varieties I have–so no photo shoot for the giants this year. Some of the McKana columbine did not come back under the pink dogwood, and I usually depend on the color against the Eastern Red Cedars. But too many flowers to name–I’ll just turn my Adirondack chair south and enjoy the show.

Quote of the Day for YOU: I thank you god for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes. ~e.e. cummings
