I realize I posted two days ago but my garden is blooming all at once and these were too lovely not to share.
Columbine are one of my favorite perennials, I call them the ballerinas of my garden.
While our part of Michigan has been in the seemingly unending grip of a draught, my work in the garden doesn’t end. Nearly every day I fill a wheelbarrow to overflowing with the removal of trimming and dead-heading those flowers now done with their spring and early summer showing.
Here’s a tour of my end-of-June garden….
All I know is that overnight I’ve seen my garden burst into bloom. From violets, lily of the valley and bluebells in phase one, my irises, peony tree, columbine and bleeding hearts are taking over. Soon, peonies and poppies will fill the flowerbeds and every vase I own.
It’s pure joy to watch a garden come to life.
