Not quite, but close.
The vegetable garden is flourishing, the lilacs are done, the pussy willow is full and green, the endless summer hydrangea may just pull through this year.
The color of late came from the few early blooming perennials we get to watch unfold (literally) before our eyes for about 8 days each year.
These babies are short-lived, but leave BIG impact.
I always enjoy a huge bouquet of peonies perfuming the house, the quick bursting of the poppies (look away and you may miss it), and the delicacy of the iris, gracing the garden one bloom at a time.
