More of my white peonies are blooming and the red ones
should be open tomorrow. My purple columbine is blooming
now (lower left.) The Dutch iris are on the wane, but
the yellows are still lovely (middle bottom.)The Missouri
primrose (in the lower right corner) have begun to open,
though some bug seems to like to eat the blossoms.
I watered the garden this morning because we
didn't get the good rain I was hoping for. The regular
coreopsis are putting up lots of buds now and
will soon join their dwarf cousins, which have been blooming
for two weeks. There are still a handfull of my new
Asiatic lily bulbs that have not come up. I have them marked,
and am keeping track because they are guaranteed to grow and
were quite expensive.
I noticed a bud on my
white clematis this morning. This year I have them climbing
bamboo canes instead of the metal trellis they had last year. I think the metal may have gotten
too hot because the clematis suffered terribly in the heat.
