In the garden 5/22/13
It’s unbelievable to me that it doesn’t feel that long ago that I was complaining of the long winter here in Seattle. Even more so unbelievable that today, I am about to share with you some of the most beautiful blooms in my garden landscape.
When the Iris’s appear, I know that my garden is in ‘peak season’ here at Fishtail Cottage. The weather hasn’t had so much rain that things are falling over, yet not too much sunshine that these gorgeous blooms are not withered within a day.
Last weeks blog post received a lot of comments about how beautiful the columbine here at Fishtail Cottage is ~ thank you, I am going to have to agree! It seems that this year they appeared exactly where color is needed and makes a great filler where there is extra space.
In order ~ Oriental Poppy, Lupine and Spiderwort, Sweet William, Euphorbia have appeared…
Some of our gorgeous native plants also have shown their blooms. The first photo is un-named, but it grows everywhere here with pretty white whimsical flowers. Azaleas and Rhododendron are just gorgeous this time of year.
It’s nice to see delphinium returning along with daylily's and the beginning show of the Pink Flowering Dogwood.
The snowball shrubs are still showing their glorious selves…but I can see the decline in the happiness of the blooms this week.
Finally, Roses…most of my roses have been purchased from Heirloom Roses, which means most of my roses are uniquely chosen for their fragrance and petals.
Hope to see you at this evenings Garden Party! To see where else I am linking to this week – please check my “Cottage Links” label…xoxo, tracie
Thank you for hosting the Garden Party....
We are a few weeks behind you here in Ontario, Canada. But my irises are starting to bloom and the lilacs are still in their full glory. Buds on the roses and clematis promise to give us more colour in the next week or so.
