Garden gazin' on Memorial Day weekend

May 29th, 2011 at 01:15 am

It was a little late in the day for photos, but the sun had gone done and a nice breeze was blowin'....

This is blue milkweed in the foreground, and giant allium behind it.

Here's a closeup of the pretty, star-shaped blue milkweed flowers.

You've seen my doublefile viburnum before.

Mountain laurel quickly follows the bloom of rhododendrons.

My favorite rhododendron

Another shot.

More rhodies.

Still more!

This is wiegela,an old-fashioned shrub.

Wiegela closeup. Hummingbirds like the funnel-shaped flowers.

I spent most of today writing website copy for that chemical company, and guess what? It's done! So now I can enjoy the rest of my holiday weekend (not that I'm doing anything special).

I started mowing the front lawn and will continue it tomorrow, along with the back. A woman's work is never done.

    Beautiful. I love your stone retaining wall and stairs. (I think I've mentioned that before.)

    What beautiful pictures! Thank you so much for sharing. I love, love, love your stone stairway and stone wall. If they were mine, I would have a comfy seat nearby where I could read.
