Sometimes there is no theme, no clever story to tie together diverse images other than time of season.
(Cercis canadensis ‘Forest Pansy’)
Wishing to share and put these shots to use, may we present them in their scattered glory.
Some are for the gardener’s use.
(Taxus cuspidata ‘Nana Aurescens’, three of these just added to the zen garden)
Actually several fit that category.
(Strawberries to be)
A little memory helper about what we moved, when and why it was done.
(Heuchera ‘Caramel’ recently moved to the back slope)
There is a lot to be said for buds. So filled with promise, allowing the imagination to time travel into the future with robust flowering of perfection. No insect damage, weather spoilage or human error can marr the vision. Once the flower has opened fully, there is only one path left. Like being number one, there is no where to go but down.
The same feeling can be applied to the new leaves of spring. Still young and pliable, full of color, whether green or other hues.
(Acer palmatum ‘Peaches And Cream’)
Speaking of hues…
(orchid Slc ‘Jewel Box-Scheherazade’)
…the warm pink light of earliest morning plays a game of artistic shadow on the wall.
(Yes, it is potted in wine corks)
The light is a magic wand, transforming the mundane into magnificent.
(Sedum, Hylotelephium erythrostictum ‘Mediovariegatum’, I hate the new name)
Fresh greens illuminated.
(Erica carnea ‘Westwood Yellow’ , iris and daylilies, among others)
Fresh life ready to meet the world.
(Eastern Swallowtail on white Phlox subulata)
Creates hearts a’flutter.
As always, a big hug and heads up to Monica the Garden Faerie for thinking up Mish Mash Monday.
