The showy flowers right now are iris, poppies, dame’s rocket and bleeding hearts.
In the front yard, the perennial bachelor’s button centaura montana is starting up and will not quit until fall. Lots of lavender flowers–also blooming is the wood hyacinth, or English bluebells? hyacinthoides: In wildflower news, I was thrilled to see the wood betony I brought from Downerville woods made it through the winter. I hope it’s happy here and spreads.
And, 100 yards from our driveway on the side of the road I spied a long patch of false Solomon’s Seal. I checked that the patch was sizeable, and seeing that it was, I carefully dug up four small tubers. I planted them in the front yard and then it rained straight for three days–so, not surprisingly they’ve done fine.
We thought our trumpet vine was dead, but it’s looking very vigorous. Also, the hibiscus is sprouting.
