I had planned to put up some pictures from a visit to a local greenhouse –the splendors of abundance — but the garden is so lovely in the morning light and so many things are changing right now that I couldn’t resist.
It is in this bed that the most changes are happening right now. There are the iris, allium (newly opening), a tiny orange wallflower starting up, and some lilies that have suddenly become proper plants. There are also malva, hollyhocks, and a variety of types what I think of as black eyed Susans. I should look up proper names for these– some of the varieties are ones that my gardening neighbor and I dug from a fallow field in the countryside.
And here are the phlox by the barn, getting more gorgeous..
Looking behind these phlox, toward the corner of the barn, the lilies are starting to come. And it looks like they have increased substantially since last year. This lily is enormous, white, and heavily scented.
