More from the end of May...
I caught a few nice shots of the unwinding blooms of Tulipa 'Sorbet' amidst the sea of foliage on the Hill Garden. These photos were taken May 20th, 2011. I love the art in Tulipa 'Sorbet'.
Tulipa 'Ice Stick' and continued with Tulipa 'China Pink'. The blooms have totally ended for these past two weeks in this garden, but it is poised to burst again any moment with Rosa 'The Fairy', Shasta daisies and Malva (see last years photos).
A small, short spot of "ground cover" succession (see it here in March snow). Hens & chicks (Echeveria hyb.), the dark leaved Ajuga reptans flowering with its purple spikes, some evergreen Phlox subulata and forget-me-nots mixed in. The languishing foliage of Crocus vernus 'Jeanne d' Arc' was plucked out this week.
