Seven, Five and Eight! Those are the numbers of Yellow Lady’s Slippers along the back drive.
In 2013 we had seven blooms, 2014 five and this year we have eight blooms.
Here are six and there is another hiding in the brush.
This one is quite stately and closer to the road.
So this one makes eight!
I am thrilled that they are doing so well this year since it was such a horrid winter for many plants.
My Lupines all winterkilled…not enough snow and my Iris croaked too. The Roses are looking better after I trimmed back some dead wood.
The Veronica is blooming.
Veronica makes the wild gardens look like they have water in them. This Veronica ‘Blue Bouquet’ reseeds itself all over…and when you have wild gardens that is a good thing.
Campanula glomerata ‘Joan Elliott’ is looking good. She is just starting to form clusters of bellflowers.
Our weather has been wonderfully cool, with rain every other day…the lawn grows really fast….and if you are too busy to mow for a few days you may have to make hay!
June is such a delightful month with something new blooming every few days. The Deer have not eaten my Lilies yet…I am keeping my fingers crossed that they are eating their fill of the peas in the field across the road.
