So maybe I've got a few????
The last couple of weeks has been tough. Everyone is showing pictures of their beautiful flowers. And the flower farmer has none.
Well -- really that's not true. I have iris -- I have tulips and daffodils -- I have lilacs and peonies and snowball bushes. But I don't have quantity. At least not for the 60 to 100 people that can come here in a week.
But today ........ one of my favorite flowers is blooming. This is Baptistia -- or false indigo. It is a perennial -- it does seed slowly. It blooms roughly at the same time as my late-blooming peonies. Its seed heads will look like footballs later and can be used in dried arrangements.
But for now -- I love its rich blue color and its wayward arching stems. It won't be here long --- but its a beautiful show while it is here.
