Since this picture was taken we have had several warm sunny days and things are 'bustin out all over'! I went down there a few hours ago with my camera and my first real exploration of the garden.
On the left is a lacy hydrangea tree! It should bloom all summer. I have one in England that is growing up one of the walls -- but I like this idea of a tree. Maybe I'll take a shoot from the wall and try to grow one! Does anyone know the magenta colored flower next to the Iris in the photo below?
Lovely day and a fun exploration. And from what I see, lots to come throughout the summer and fall.
Addendum: That red plant is a clematis! I'm not sure which one, but Red Pearl or Red Clematis are strong possibilities! I still have not found that Iris ...
