It’s that time of year again!



This might be Moonstone, but I’m not sure. The established plant came with the house.



And this one is, I think, Sarah Bernhardt. Any one know for sure? It might be a little too deep in color. In any case, it’s gorgeous and always flowers about a week later.



I played with light levels here to get this washed out look; nice with the white flowers…

The leaves in these two images are Solomon’s Seal/ polygonatum. I had actually never heard of it until we moved here and a friend gave me a few cuttings. Not much happened for two years, but now…they have exploded. Mine are in partial shade and loving it.


And some more of the variegated Solomon’s Seal in a mixed bouquet:


More peonies in the afternoon shadows:


That’s it for this week; I’m off to New York for a few days to work a trade show, see friends, hang out with daughter, eat some good food and yes, maybe shop.
