The garden is ever changing these days. Every day something else is blooming. Returning home, is a mesmerizing experience. Opening my car door, I’m immediately overcome with sights and smells and colour. It always makes me happy to be home.
The California Lilacs are in bloom, with the lavender’s just hitting their prime. When a good wind comes, the aroma lights up the neighborhood. More Lilly’s were opening today, adding to the parade.
Following suit, the Day Lilly’s are breaking open. You can almost hear them sizzle! I look forward to the coming days, when there will be a sea of them.
The dwarf Speedwell spikes are always a favorite sight of summer. I love their colour and texture. Even though I avoided plant purchases before my vacation, I did end up buying a few smaller of these plants for the front of my garden. No blooms so far. I didn’t plant them for this year, I planted them for the next.
