There is nothing better than a stroll/sojourn/skip around the yard in early evening this time of year. A nice cool breeze, sun setting, beverage in hand, kids quietly occupied and all is good in the hood.
Here is what I discovered on today's trip:
The blooms are starting to appear on the Weigela 'Wine and Roses':
Soon to be followed by the Physocarpus (Ninebark) 'Summer Wine':
Without fail, the Nepeta (Catmint) 'Walker's Low' are back and blooming and sure to draw in the bees by the thousands:
It's like Christmas Eve with the peonies. I enjoy the anticipation of blooms as much as the actual blooms:
I don't know which Heuchera cultivar this is but it seems to be blooming sooner than all of the others. Those blooms will be snipped soon as I feel like they take away from the fine foliage:
I am becoming more and more hooked on the Salix 'Hakuro Nishiki' foliage and need to add some more soon:
I know I take too many photos of Campanula 'Joan Elliot', but that purple color friggin rocks:
Enjoy the upcoming week and we'll do this again soon.
