June 4 report
The yellow irises are in bloom, and have been for about a week now. They are old irises, a sort that was very popular decades ago and have a look of something reverted to nature. They are tinged with a purplish color that, mixed with yellow, seems brown, like an old bruise. Not actually very attractive! Yet, in a large clump they look pretty.
The ground phlox is nearly all gone by - just a few bits of blossom left. I shallmow it shortly and hope to generate some new rowth.
The day lilies are lush, but a long way from bloom
The nasturtiums that S planted in the little kidney-shaped bed at the end of the driveway ahve come up, but most are hidden by over-zealous white hydrangea shoots.
The hydrangea shrubs are.... lush, and a tad over-zealous!
