Showers And Flowers

The front yard garden is awfully lush, and a little late, spurring what should be a fabulous late May flowering. I'm glad for the last couple days of rain because it creates a rich sense of spring and intensity of growth.

The allium prepare.

Tradescantia bloom.

Something nips the bud of grandma's rose.

And our resident invasive makes a show of it.

The chive doth bloom.

And the iris peak.

The hosta leaf out and Star-of-Bethlehem, Ornithogalum umbellatum, shines on.


  1. Good luck with the interview. Warm your voice up nicely, drink honey and some pea shoots. Love that last picture.

  2. Thanks Marie. Juicing my voice right now;)

  3. I always learn something from your blog. Star-of-Bethlehem! That's what those flowers are called, had no idea what the name was! I have them growing wild on my lawn. Very cool!

  4. Meems, they're invasive type weeds. Someone gave me them a few years ago and I didn't know what they were!


If I do not respond to your comment right away, it is only because I am busy pulling out buckthorn, creeping charlie, and garlic mustard...
