It’s early June. As I move about town here in the Charlotte area, I am excited to see the colorful changes that are taking place in the gardening world. Plants that have been sleeping through spring are now shouting their presence.
Crape Myrtles are starting to open:
Daylilies are starting to show in people’s gardens (mine are still in bud stage) and along our highways:
Our good old Southern magnolias are blooming, and my gardenia bush is leaning with the weight of the fragrant flowers.
Hydrangeas are awake. This is ‘Endless Summer.’
Most of my spring flowers are fading, so it is encouraging to see that the summer beauties have arrived.
