The climbing hydrangea that may one day eat the little garden shed completely is just starting its bloom.
This may be the year that I am able to manage the grape vines a bit and get the archway in this passage between the shed roof of the barn and the garden shed going. I like the little passage.
And on a hot sunny day, this passage into the woods is particularly inviting. I walk through here just to cool off.
At the end of that little woods walk, the astilbe in front of the hydrangeas under the birch are just starting to think about blooming.
While the Janet Blair rhododendron is about through with its annual show. I still think this is my favorite rhodie, though I am mightily impressed with the pale yellow Capistrano rhododendron I saw in full bloom this year.
Mornings here are lovely.
