Natives and New in the Garden
These are currently out in riotous bloom all around our property, adding a real 'pop' of colour to my walks and wanders.
Meanwhile, up at the Office, Carol's rhodedendrons are looking very impressive. My Mom would have been thrilled with these -- it was not always possible to find plants that would withstand our winters, even under covers. She grew up in England where it is common to see huge hedges and stands of rhododendrens. She would have approved of these!
In the garden, the iris are all starting to come into bloom. We have a wide variety and the colours can be breath-taking. Add to them the bluebird popping in and out looking for food for the nestlings, and you have a beautiful place indeed!
