You can count on weeks-even months-of pleasure from a lot of plants. I’m thinking of the roses, lilies, grasses, and other perennials that will be coming later this summer. But the superstars of spring often disappear within days.
At top are my Obdam double daffs: complete failures in the garden-how they flop in the rain!-but wonderful inside. And above are the charming erythronium Pagoda (the best cultivar of erythronium for my garden). These last just a bit longer, but not long enough.
Sorry for the iphone pics; that’s what I had today.
