Along with others I’m posting our current blooms as part of Garden Blogger’s Bloom Day. This month’s big winner is a Passion Flower from Logee’s Tropical Plants that we picked up this winter. Putting it out on the deck has given it a chance to grow rampantly and it’s now blooming it’s head off. I have no idea what we will do for bringing it in come winter…:)
For the yard itself the real statement right now is coming from the lilies.
In addition to the daylilies that are appearing everywhere, the asiatic lilies are popping up in various places about the yard.
A particular standout is the Lily ‘Blackout’ son Jonathan shared with us this year.
It’s a good time of year right now and many other things are blooming — roses, gallardia, globe flower, spiderworts, astilbe, sundrops, geraniums, etc. But upon just returning from the a trip this weekend the other thing that really caught my eye was the patch of wildflowers on the hillside. This was grown from seeds from Wildseed Farms. It’s hard to go wrong with any of their mixtures, but it’s best if you can start with a section of bare earth before seeding in the fall.
And then in celebration of the season let me close with a picture from this morning’s birdwatching…
