The better question might be: What’s not blooming? After our very slow and cold spring, we finally are getting some sun and heat and the plants have responded with enthusiasm.
During a quick walk around the neighborhood, I spied peonies, roses, irises, hardy geraniums, wiegelas, baptisia and lupine. The tomatoes that were set out early in pots look like they are about to bloom. And, on a trip the North Shore of Lake Superior over the weekend, there were plenty of wildflowers to view. (The locals said their two weeks (or more) behind a normal spring, so wildflowers should be visible for several weeks.)
Here are a few photos of the plants we’ve noticed. What’s blooming in your neck of the woods?
