Garden fluff.

 

Since our spring was so late and cool, things have been blooming a bit more slowly this year.

But no matter when it blooms, if there’s any better smell than fresh lilacs?

I’ve yet to find it.

Though honeysuckle comes in a close second.

This one doesn’t look like much from far away…

But up close it’s pretty sweet.

These Mallow I planted a few weeks ago have quickly become my favorite new bloomer.

Naturally when I went back to the nursery for more they were sold out.

Boo to that.

June in Maine means rhododendrons…..

As well as Lupine.

And I love these purple beauties!

  1. So that’s what those beautiful flowers are called, the mallows I mean. We have them here around campus and they bring such a pop of color. I love the garden here at work, the landscapers really do a great job keeping it green and lush. Just like your house!

      1. I’ll have to check it out and see if there are any varieties that go to 4 or lower. When I asked you what your zone is, I kinda felt like I was asking, “Hey baby, what’s your sign?” but in a garden-geek kind of way: “Hey baby, what’s your zone?”
