This will be my last Spring Things of the 2012 WordCount Blogathon. One more post tomorrow and I am done! (Then time for the next challenge - the Author Blog Challenge in June.)
Spring is nearly done, too. The calendar page still says we are in the month of May. However, the plants in bloom, here in upstate New York, are screaming June! June! June!
Saturday, I was out and about in the Binghamton, New York area. I visited Otsiningo Park, and also our local botanical gardens, Cutler Botanic Garden.
Cutler is small but worth visiting if you are in the Binghamton, New York area. It features several perennial theme gardens plus an All-American Selections display garden. It was heavily damaged in last year's flood but the master gardeners have put in hours and hours of restoration work. To them, I say thank you. This little gem of a garden is free, unless you want a guided tour or a class.
And last but not least, a closeup of these irises.
With summer almost here, I have a number of wildflower pictures ready to share with you in June. See you again next week!
What is your favorite flower of late spring? Roses? Irises? Clementis? Early hosta? Something not hardy enough to grow in upstate NY (zone 5b?)
