As we transition to early summer, the garden is filling out with greenery and more and more flowers. The stars right now are definitely the Shirley poppies (Papaver rhoeas), which are doing particularly well this year.
One Shirley poppy form ...
... and another ...
... and two more
Otherwise, too, there are a lot of reds and pinks at the moment:
A seedling Canna indica grown from seed collected last year in New Orleans
Red valerian (Centranthus ruber)
Firecracker plant (Dichelostemma ida-maia)
There are still a few more seedlings to plant out and some more seeds to sow, but by and large now things just need to grow. Hopefully we will get enough rain in the coming weeks, and lots of warmth.
