The hydrangeas are beginning to set blooms. This Niko Blue is even showing a bit of blue without my interference of adding some Aluminum Sulfate to the surrounds.
The Oakleaf hydrangea is in full swing too. It pays no mind to the weather vagaries.
There are still some astilbe blooming.
The Goose neck Loosestrife are beginning to stick out their necks.
The ever dependable day lilies like Litte Grapette are blooming.
The Hostas are living up to their predecessors nick names of Plaintain Lilies. 'Love Pat' has these beautiful clusters of small lilies hoisted up above those cupped blue rumpled leaves just begging you to take a whiff.
We have all sizes of hostas in the garden. Dogs too for that matter. This little toy poodle named Oly belongs to a friend and is visiting us here in Greenbow. He belongs to a friend of mine and while she goes out East to visit he stays here. He is dwarfed by the big hosta 'Blue Angel'. In the planter right behind them is a minature hosta 'Mouse Ears' blooming. You can see the size difference.
Here by the fairy garden you can see up close a larger clump of Mouse Ears. It is tiny delight hugging close its small lily-like blooms.
Another lilliputin bloomer is this tiny sedum with its tiny bloom. You really need a macro lens to fully appreciate this tiny bloom.
On the other end of the spectrum a little spash of sunshine yellow hosta even has a flower or two.
And we don't want to forget those beautiful white lilies that people often throw out after Easter. It is much more fun to stick them into your garden and see them bloom the next year around this time. They will be even more beautiful on a warm summer evening shining in the dusky light while throwing that lovely lily scent into the air.
To the wilder side of the garden the butterfly weed is blooming nicely.
