I need to start off by saying I’m not feeling well. Either I’ve got one of those nasty summertime stomach bugs or … something. So I took some pretty pictures today, but I couldn’t dig up the energy to actually process any of them. So if I’m not around much tomorrow, please forgive me. I’m just not functioning on all cylinders.
While they were so busy blooming, I took pictures. I think the next time I look — tomorrow if it isn’t pouring rain — I will see the beginning of the blooming of the daylilies.
I think if there had been a bit more sunshine, they would be blooming already. I don’t know if the roses will bloom this year. We cut them all the way down and it may take them a season to grow back.
I’m sure they will grow back. They are much too stubborn to die.
I saw them along the driveway and I thought they were my miniature Korean lilacs. Close up, they turned out to be a huge growth of tiny asters.
Each bunch of asters looked like a lilac — if you don’t see very well, that is.
Wild and bright pink and living along the fencing of the farm down the road. It’s there for the cows to enjoy and I’m sure they do.
About as pink as you can get, too!
One of the very few wildflowers that is truly a native to these shores, Solomon’s Seal is on the endangered list of wildflowers.
They thrive in our woodland garden. There are many more in the woods. We planted just a couple of them along the edge of the woods by our driveway a dozen years ago and they have increased to quite a large patch.
These have not opened yet. I think that will be a couple of days from now, but even when they do, the flowers are as green as the stems on which they grow. I will take more pictures as they bloom. I do dearly love them.
