The 4th of July holiday is coming up fast. But last week I spotted these early fireworks in Minns Garden, outside the Plant Science Building where I work at Cornell University.
If you want Alliums like these in your garden, find directions at the end of this post from last year.
Finally getting around to posting the rest of the pictures from last weekend. Below is the front garden with the borrowed scenery from the wetland and ridge. One of my favorite scenes, despite the ‘bad haircut’ look from having just weed-whacked.
Ladybug in Japanese lilac.
Scotch thistle bud.
Phlomis further along. Am really starting to like this plant.
And some more foxglove pix…
My quest this late spring/early summer has been to take a great Aruncus picture. This is my last try this year, as it’s starting to yellow and fade. Now I’ve got a year to contemplate how to go from OK to great in this challenge.
These all looked good this morning. Chilly for tropicals, but good.
