I was in Michigan over the weekend for the wedding of a friend from high school, so for this Bloom Day we will have a look at a few of the many things currently flowering at my parents' place in the Detroit suburbs. After an absurdly long and cold winter, the summer has so far been cooler and wetter than usual, which makes for a particularly lush flower garden.
The inca lily (Alstroemeria cv.) in the last picture is new this year and has been flowering continuously since planted in May. It remains to be seen if it will really be hardy in the Michigan garden as advertised by the nursery.
