A Brief Garden Visit, Photos by Amy
It was impossible to walk by this brilliant yellow lily without taking a closer look!
This foxglove's beautiful pink flowers have reached the top. Soon they too will have gone to seed but for now they look terrific. I love the fly!
Here we are looking at grass from a new point of view. Who notices grass flowers? Amy does!
A stone marks this Sweet Annie plant among the weeds in the potato bed. It's easy to identify when weeding not by its appearance, but by its aroma. I always save this plant for Jane if I find one. It is her favorite!
Whorled loosestrife made an appearance close to Ed's trailing arbutus. It is a wildflower, perhaps it will get to stay!
With the acres of milkweed we have here, you might expect a Monarch butterfly. However today it was a tiger swallowtail sitting still for the photographer!
Back at the stone square we spent a little time sitting on the bench. We certainly packed a lot into a brief visit. It was spectacular!
