There is a lot of purple around the yard this week. The lupine are still blooming profusely.
Hiding in the front garden I found a single stalk of campanula glomerata (isn't that a funny name?), a plant I thought had died out. I hope this means it is making a comeback.
And, the Baptisia are making a huge show this year. I love the flowers, but the plants are proving to be a bit invasive for the size of my space. Not sure how I'm going to handle this.
There are also a lot of roses this week. The climbers in my Daughter's gardens are blooming, and they smell so good. These pink ones are called "Social Climber"!
I don't remember the name of the yellow one, but it smells even better than the pink one. Both of these will have more blossoms throughout the summer.
This pale pink rose in the front yard only blooms once a year. Unfortunately, it suffered a lot of winter damage, and doesn't have anywhere near as many blossoms as it usually does.
The rugosa rose out front (a double flowering variety called "Scabrosa") is having issues this year also. It has thrown several stems of a sport, that is only a single flowering variety, of a much paler pink.
It also suffered a lot of die-back over the winter.
But, there was enough left of the magenta double-flowered parent to make this beautiful display next to the Purple Nine Bark (yet another strangely named plant).
For Weasley, of course, the most important part of the garden this week is this. The parsley patch is in full bloom. There should be a great new crop of parsley planting itself soon. Ooh, the anticipation!
Have a great weekend, everybun. I hope it lives up to all of your expectations!
