In fact, this time of year, there seems to be something new in bloom every day…like these white blossoms that suddenly appeared on a few trees in the woods yesterday.
In the back garden, my little golden allyssum plant from the Farmer’s Market is coming into bloom, too.
So there’s no reason to be sad, since the show’s just getting started…and there’ll be so much to see this year.
I’ve been meaning to stop into the doctor’s office in Orleans shown here for a years now, with a mind toward inquiring as to the identity of this red-blooming upright shrubs. They are quite handsome, but a complete mystery to this gardener.
Meanwhile, in one of our shady beds along the kitchen walkway, violets previously transplanted have filled in the border blooms quite nicely.
Following an afternoon drink, these red primroses are downright sexy in the late day sun.
And another different species of miniature daffodil has surprised me with its blossoms. I love the way they hang off the stems like little ballerinas. If they bloomed just a little later (and it won’t be long, actually), they’d be a perfect partner with our columbines.
Here’s another of this gardener’s favorite things about the coming season!!
