Rain stopped, sun shone, garden blossomed.
What a star. We planted this shrub last year, but I can’t remember what it’s called. Does anyone know?
I hope you enjoy this tour of the garden – taken today for Celie at http://thekitchensgarden.com/2012/05/23/and-i-want-to-see-your-garden-too/ – she gave us a great tour of her garden in the prairie lands south of Chicago.
Some of the pictures are of the wild part of the garden on thebank behind the house, also the bog garden, with Dick Tur-a-pin sunbathing in the pond. There’s the first rose of summer, some late planted spindly runner beans, incipient radishes, Doyenne de Comice pears and lettuces as well as some nearly strawberries, and blackcurrants.
