The busyness of the last two weeks of school kept us out of the garden, but this morning we were back. Both girls came with me, although one is better at dodging my camera than the other.
Such incredible colors this morning. The skies were overcast, and the sidewalks were still wet from the overnight rains. The lilies are in full bloom, and the poppies as well. Bright colors, but soft as well. Like watercolors, everywhere.
She found a lucky penny and was excited to throw it into a fountain, but none of the fountains were just the right one. She finally gave up and put it in her pocket to keep.
We found so many flowers in mid-bloom. Incredibly cool, especially this allium, half open. And the poppies.
White and feathery, with shots of bold colors. I’m in awe of gardeners with such vision and talent at painting with landscapes.
I like the shady, damp mornings of early summer, especially with my girls.
