As I said a few posts back, my early summer garden seems to go through color phases, and we are just finishing off the "purple phase". Alliums, Irises, Chives, Jacob's Ladder, Cranesbill, Columbine, etc. etc. All in various shades of purple, bluey-purple and pinky-purple. Yep, we've got "purple power" goin' on!
And it's even spread to indoors! The orchid I bought last November is blooming again. This is the first orchid I've ever had so I'm very pleased that I have kept it going and actually coaxed a second blooming. I thought it might be years before it would bloom again... At this point there are three blooms and nine buds still to open.
Summer has finally arrived.... we are enjoying an absolutely beautiful weekend, sunny and hot. It's about time! Spring was cool and wet with many more overcast days than bright ones. I hope the weather is lovely wherever you are this weekend. Get out and soak up some Vitamin D! I'm heading to the deck with my book...
I am joining Mary at
Little Red House for Mosaic Monday.
