Memorial Day is not only a day to fly our flag proudly around here at Blooming Hill, it is also a great day to flaunt the colors of our gardens...
Red, white and blue are certainly seen in all of their glory, but so are purple, green, yellow, pink and cream as well as all of the hues in-between.
Everything is beginning to bloom at a furious pace and it's hard to know where to point my camera next to snap a photo. The place is a "blooming hill" of color from primrose to peonies to baptisia, poppies and lovely iris still rise above the boxwood. Roses are opening and even some lavender is beginning to show flushes of pale pinks and blues. Memorial Day weekend was awash in color! What a way to usher in summer.
