This year’s crop of grapes is small, and won’t be ripe for at least another month, but I was reminded of what we have to look forward to by this photo of a prior year sent in by neighbors Roy and Mary — thanks for sharing!
Summer is here and all of the plants have leafed out.
The various clumps of dianthus growing along the fence seem to have generally survived the winter and are blooming again.
I love the way the globes of these alliums intersect and overlap, like adjacent spherical pyrotechnic bursts.
This azalea bush looked a little forlorn over the winter, but has made a wonderful return.
This week’s warm weather has encouraged the grapevines to open their first buds.
The daffodils have been in bloom for two weeks and show no sign of stopping.
One of the earliest blooms on our block.
The new holly has produced a lovely crop of berries to add some bright color to our winter.
Most of the flowers are gone from the garden, but the cockscombs (Celosia) are still vibrant.
