The sun returned again yesterday. I was quite surprised because the morning was gray and rainy. I was very good and didn't go out until I had finished my inside work. Just thought I'd share some of what I found in my backyard.
My Corsican hellebore was looking especially pretty with sun shining on her. It's interesting to note that the Corsican hellebores that are not in mostly sun are very far behind in blooming. They are just beginning to show buds. This particular one is full of flowers and buds.
Clematis jackmanii is showing lots of new growth. It covers a tuteur outside the kitchen window with tons of dark purple flowers.
The pulmonaria is continuing to produce a lot of flowers. I'd say this is the best year it's had. The other pulmonarias in my yard are nowhere near as energetic right now. They are mostly resting and showing some leaves.
I think this is one of my favorite pictures of flowers this year. You can see the color changing from blue to pink on two of the flowers. If you click to enlarge it, the flowers almost pop out.
Looking up at the blue sky through the apple tree. The buds are swelling and it looks as if the flowers are not far away.
A lupine leaf with the sun shining on it. I've forgotten what color flowers are on this one. They only seem to live for a few years, if I'm lucky they reseed. They are one of my favorite early June flowers. I think they have a very nice scent as well.
I hope the sun can hold on for one more day, I have another flower bed that needs a good cleanup.
