Misty Morning

The river warmed up enough over the last few weeks to produce steam in the chilly early morning air.

This is the best year yet for my large Allium.  It is spreading nicely.

The hummingbirds are back.  

The lilac has finished blooming.  It was likely planted by the original owners in 1927.  It has the most attractive fragrance of any I've come across.  It doesn't have as many blooms as it used to, though.  I'll have to see if there is anything that can be done to encourage it.

The Large-flowered Trillium flowers are turning pink.  I have one fewer clump this year, but the four clumps with flowers have multiplied (two without).  I have been artificially pollinating them with a disposable make-up applicator the last few years.

  1. Lovely, lovely pictures. And I didn't know you were helping nature along with a make-up applicator. Well that's just more 'lovely' :)
