But first thing on Saturday morning I made a quick round of the garden, looking for any new flowers since Bloom Day. There were a few.
|The comfrey beside my compost pile is flowering much pinker than it did last year, when it was in the raised bed.|
|Thalictrum 'Black Stockings'|
|I love the spots inside foxglove flowers|
|Saxifrage 'London Pride'|
|Arum "Jack Sprat' with airy Saxifrage flowers|
|I almost missed seeing my Arum 'Jack Sprat' flower. The spathe is speckled like the leaves, and it was facing away from the path, so it looked like just another leaf.|
|This Ceanothus in the gravel garden has doubled in size since it was planted last spring|
|Spanish lavender and the golden foliage of Tanacetum parthenium 'Aureum'|
|Dianthus 'Pop Star'|
|Variegated sage in the gravel garden has also doubled in size since last year|
|I turn many of my pots without holes upside down so they don't fill with water, but they still add a nice textural element to the garden.|
Ah well, time to haul my butt to Tacoma, and then Heronswood...
