Now that the Lilacs are Gone …..

There’s always something new to enjoy: the old man’s beard and viburnums are in radiant bloom and the pines are holding their candles high

The first purple irises have come and gone, but most of the iris display is only just beginning. And in the wildflower bed a poppy is about to open…

It’s shaping to be a good year.
