In bloom

Weather changes moods. Here's what is blooming in the garden today.

Robust yellow and white irises. How great to have a sister-in-law with her own landscaping company and a willingness to share plant divisions!

The line of spirea is at its most extravagent, as its boughs bend and tussle with blooms.

Rhododendron "Lodestar"

While in the woodland garden, there is a scattering of phlox divaracata that followed me north from Chevy Chase . . .

. . . a stand of our state flower, the mayapple . . . . . . and even a few jacks-in-the pulpit.
