The courtyard blooms continue to come early – some varieties of Hosta are already blooming! The blossoms on my largest leaf variety stand over 4 feet tall. The Sedum are blooming as well; I didn’t even capture a photo of the purple sedum in full bloom. Some are flowering longer than I expected – the Shrub Roses, Gaillardia, Yarrow, Veronica’s Candles, and Hydrangea are still in full bloom!
I love this time of year, everything is so lush in the courtyard, and shaded by the tall pines, it is a welcome respite from the hot summer sun.
