Everything’s blooming this week – or at least growing, after days of long steady rainfall followed by early intense summer sun and heat. It’s been an incredibly beautiful Memorial Day weekend in spite of the pandemic and my outdoor oasis is giving me a place to exercise, enjoy nature and escape. Don’t we all need to connect with those things that feed our soul?
After a week of sun and hot temps, my garden transitioned again as Zinnias, Lillies, Snapdragons and Hostas have burst into full bloom. Even between the bricks in my lower patio determined flowers are emerging, including the Snapdragon below.
Within the last week, my irises and peonies are blooming, lily of the valley and bleeding hearts are finishing their cycle. With a heavy rain last night following several hot days this week, my herb garden is starting to show growth as are my tomato and peppers plants. It’s a joy to share my oasis; this slideshow features my peonies, irises and some of the mixed flower and herb beds.
