The first spring after we bought the house in early 2013, we discovered that we have a BEAUTIFUL Asiatic lily bed just outside our doggie door. When they emerge, I know summer has arrived. These are some of my favorite. They make stunning cut arrangements. The bed blooms for about six weeks, starting in May.
Blackberries. The result of the recent cold snap (or Blackberry Winter), my thornless blackberries are now blooming.
Bachelor’s buttons. Also known as cornflower, this is an annual but it freely reseeds so they come back every year! I’ve got them in pots on my patio…planted in 2014 for the first time.Daylillies. We have several varieties around the property. This one is at the mailbox.
