Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day
First, the report.
In the vegetable garden: peas, potatoes, squash, topsetting onion, and tomatoes
In the herb beds: thyme, sage, lavender
In the woods: foxglove, himalayan blackberry, alpine strawberries
In the bog: water hemlock
In the borders: clematis, campanula, hardy geranium, oriental poppy, viola, deutzia glauca, tradescantia, astilbe, and roses! (Souvenir de la Malmaison, Rose de Rescht, Madame Hardy, Just Joey, Kathleen, Wine and Roses, Joseph's Coat, Cecille Brunner)
On to the pictures! I arrived home late from work this evening, and by the time we'd had dinner, it was getting on towards twilight. Shooting in low light without a flash gave me some interesting effects, in some cases almost like a watercolor.
Rose 'Kathleen', an old musk shrub rose
'Just Joey', hybrid tea
'Wine and Roses', another very old shrub rose
'Madame Hardy' damask
tradescantia, in the shadow of a variegated cornus alba
astilbe, also in the shadow of cornus alba
Made it, with 1 minute to spare!
