Saturday Photo: June Flowers are Here!
I'm not a systematic gardener, I don't keep notes about what blooms when or even a list of what I need to get for next year. But I do know roughly what order things bloom in.
The snow drops start, of course, and then come the other bulb plants. Now is the time for columbine and forget-me-nots, which make a lovely combination. The photos don't show them growing together, because I don't often get them that way. But ever since we were in Giverny--Monet's garden-- in spring a few years ago and visited the near by American Museum of Art, during a spectacular display I've been trying to combine them. This year they're not cooperating, but I love them anyway.
