GARDENIA! The most welcome, exciting bloom possible in my yard! For the humans, anyway. Smells SO GOOD!

A cute little Spiranthes.



Ornamental purslane/the other moss roses are starting to bloom. (Portulaca umbraticola, saved over winter.)

Begonias in a pot, with a little tree planted sideways to cultivate an interesting bend in its' trunk.
Thumb of 2017-05-20/purpleinopp/195b09

Callisia fragrans is still going strong, also highly valued for the scent of its' blooms.

I think it was last year I moved my Gardenia from a very shady location to a much sunnier location. It is right at the top of the garden path, so I walk by it every day when going down to check the daylilies in the bog bed. I am thinking of adding a second one at the top of the other path. I never seem to be able to smell any of the daylilies strong enough to tell where the scent is coming from, but there is no doubt with the Gardenia.

People try to turn back their "odometers." Not me. I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved

I just took this photo and I am so happy to see how blue my Hydrangeas are again this year, I love it when they are very blue. I still have a few that are sort of in between blue and pink, they look nice but not nearly as pretty as the deep blue to me.

My lilies are putting on a good show now also!
Thumb of 2017-05-26/Seedfork/477361


I think this is my current favorite color of all the lilies, but that changes often.
