So much is blooming right now, I just cannot stop myself from continually taking pictures and posting them here.
A semi-double pink Shirley poppy (Papaver rhoeas cv.)...
... and a white one
A white-flowered form of 'red' valerian (Centranthus ruber)
The very first blossoms of Nicotiana mutabilis opening
A yellow-and-orange Asiatic lily (Lilium cv.)...
... and a bright red one
The first zinnia (Zinnia elegans cv.)
I overhead a neighbor yesterday saying that she did not know another garden that makes as efficient use of space as ours... I tend to think that I simply try to cram in as much as I possibly can, because there are simply always more things I want to grow. Besides, one can never have too many flowers, especially when one has to live with New England winters.
