The Evolving Garden

Plants - Garden View 1        Every day I draw sustenance from my garden.  Summer has finally arrived in southeast Wisconsin, it appears (one must remain cautious about a declaration like that.)  Here is the back bed a few days ago with the fern leaf peony and cushion spurge in full bloom.  The giant alliums are preparing to open in the back and the weeds haven’t taken over yet!

Here is the same bed this morning after heavy rain last night.  The alliums are in full bloom now, if a bit wobbly after their beating and the peony has become just its gorgeous foliage.

I am looking forward to the standard peonies coming into bloom shortly here and I put in 3 new varieties in fall which I am eager to see.

Just to go outside this morning and breathe….ah!  Great way to start the day with lower blood pressure, lungs expanded by fresh moist air, eyes relaxing amid all that green.  Praise for the morning!
