The lilac are insanely gorgeous and I delight walking up and down the lane, reveling in their rich color and scent. We have them in an assortment of yummy colors--white, traditional lavender, deep lavender and picotee, deep lavender with white outlines--just beautiful. Everything seems to be a few weeks ahead of last year, we are cutting viburnum and peony heads are forming! I included a photo of the "snow drift" just outside the kitchen window--anemone sylversteris. These tiny white flowers have gone to seed and spread themselves, covering a slight berm and look just like a drift of snow blown in overnight. I will have a few on the truck this week.
The thermopsis has peaked and will only be available this week. The allium is coming on strong and we have bundles in two different sized heads. The snapdragons and sweet peas in the greenhouses are just now beginning to bloom. We have Chantilly snaps in white, pink, yellow, burgundy and deep velvety red. Sweet peas are blooming in lavender, pink, wine and white.
On a whim RT cut some dogwood twigs with foliage and they have been a real hit. (See the photo below.) In the winter the twigs are lemon yellow and as the days begin to lengthen and warm they turn apple green. This year just as they were turning green they exploded into foliage and bloom. I think they are fabulous!
Thank you for using so many Bindweed flowers again this Mother's Day--we appreciate you so very much and wish you all excellent success with this heavy weekend.
