I am very happy with the garden so far this season. I have never had so many iris ready to bloom!
The deer have not eaten anything (yet), so I have dozens of Asiatic lilies that should bloom in early July (if our luck holds and the deer don't discover this diner before then).
I stood in my bedroom window and just took these photos: This one is toward the road....
I turned slightly to the right to show you the woodland side of the path.
A few degrees more toward the right shows the view toward the backyard rockwall garden. I have three arbors and you have seen all three with these views.
Many years ago (like 20), I dug up a few lilac shoots from my childhood home. They have never done much of anything. Every five years or so, I moved them in hopes that someday I would be able to cut some lilacs for an indoor bouquet.................I had almost given up hope...until this year...I was thrilled to see a ton of flowers on the bushes....this is my second indoor bouquet of lilacs.......
I have really been enjoying this flower holder that I purchased a few months ago....I have used it for daffodils..
