Our garden continues to bring forth a delight of blooms as we move from one season to another. The vitex have just about finished, but the crape myrtles are taking over. I’m still waiting for ‘Tuscarora’ to open, and will share its lovely blossoms with you when they show.
Today my wife helped me fill a pitcher with flowers for today’s offering. The pitcher, some may recognize, was previously the home of an unfortunate Carolina wren family that lost its young earlier this year to an unidentified critter. But it’s back in service now.
The fisherman is a small artifact we found in Japan and my wife thought it might fit the summer mood of the arrangement.
In the arrangement: Thuja ‘Green Giant’ arborvitae, ‘Queen Dorothy’ daylily, ‘Daquiri’ daylily, Phlox paniculata ‘Flame Lilac,’ unidentified pink Phlox paniculata, ‘Becky’ Shasta daisy (Leucanthemum x superbum), Hydrangea ‘Blushing Bride,’ and an unidentified blue Hydrangea macrophylla.
I apologize for the several unidentified plants in the arrangement. They have made too many moves over the years. Where is the keeper of lost labels?
