Soul Food #94
“Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.”
The blues still predominate..the irises are just so pretty like the fanciful victorian ladies in their frocks.. My husband said.. they are a touch of elegance in the gardens..Sometimes.. his choice of words ..makes me smile broadly.I loved that he said that.
The yellow rose of Texas shines in June..
Some of the perennial geraniums..thalictrum,some roses and peonies..But still mostly the blues..the aliums..baptisias..rhododendron..
I have one patch of bright orange,huge poppies that don't match a thing.But I cannot pull them ..they reach for the sky and pop!The light cathes them in a certain way that make them magical..
The corals and pinks will bloom next~
It broke my heart to cut Bluebird way back.. but it was growing up the wrong railing and became hidden by a yew..Too pretty to be invisible but to us..so now I will train her towards the right~She has it..she must flaunt it..I believe in that for flowers..not people.
Have a nice time in your gardens~ Small of large.A pot or a plot.
