Today was a lovely day in the garden. I completed some trimming and deadheading chores and then strolled around the garden. New colors are making their presence felt. Let me share just a few of them.
These are all members of the ‘Endless Summer’ family of hydrangeas. Although all of them were rather severely damaged with a late frost, they are able to flower on new wood and are loaded with blooms.
I am very excited to see the first lavender blooms on my vitex. I expect to see armies of bees in the near future. I cut back my three vitex trees rather severely over the winter, and they are bounding over with new growth. It’s going to be a good season.
More color is coming now from Society garlic, an annual Mandevilla vine, and the first coneflower this year.
And finally the first daylily, aptly named ‘Early Red.’
