The year 2016 is speeding by, here in the Binghamton area of upstate New York. A warm day is dawning for my zone 5b garden.
On Wednesdays, I normally have a seasonal post. Today it also coincides with a monthly meme hosted by an Indiana garden blogger, Garden Bloggers Bloom Day.
What is blooming for me on this beautiful 15th of June? Flowers, but more than that. In a week of sadness for our country, the garden is an escape. For a few minutes, when you walk in a garden, worries melt away and you are surrounded by beauty.
Today, I want to surround my readers in beauty.
My perennials are between blooms. I will show you the one I have in a minute. But first, a word from my annuals.
I am trying to grow African impatiens again after a three or so year break due to the downy mildew I, and many others, was struck with. New Guinea impatiens are resistant, but, for me, they just aren't the same.
Several of my many hanging baskets.
Now to the one perennial that is blooming right now - my yellow bleeding heart (complete with a weed stuck in the middle I have no time to remove.
