This is my favorite time of year: not yet hot, not buggy, and no hurricane season to worry about. Everything has greened up and the light and air are so clear.
The Phlox divaricata is finishing up and is starting to go to seed.
Lots of different things are in bloom -- Columbine, Iris, early roses, Dianthus, Indigofera, azaleas, Baptisias, spiderworts, Geraniums...
The big bed over the last few days, with the Iris and Baptisia starting up.
A lovely noid iris named Eva's White after my husband's grandmother. The
fragrance smells to me like a combination of Snowbell and vanilla.
This cute little iris is the Dwarf Bearded Iris 'Pippi Longstocking'. She is very vigorous and has a very long bloom time.
The color of Crimson King is to me the perfect purple color, especially when the light
shines through it.
'Zwanenburg Blue' Spiderwort
Coast Azalea -- the flowers smell like spicy cotton candy.
Indigofera blooms from spring until frost.
Our native Geranium maculatum
Thank you to Katarina at roses and stuff for hosting Blooming Friday.
