I absolutely love the rotation or flowers at the end of May and beginning of June. I can tell what week it is simply by what's in bloom. The daisies have spread in front of the barn like a carpet white and yellow lace.
The scent of the mock orange blossoms is filling the air with delicious tropical memories.
My favorite poppies are almost peaking.
Blankets of purple phlox cover every forest meadow in sight.
It's a glorious time of year, perfect for gathering bouquets to fill the house. I plan on getting up at the crack of dawn come Wednesday morning and picking bunches for my botanical printing class at Squam. Somehow, they will have to stay fresh on a long drive and over a couple of days... any suggestions how to do that would be oh so welcome! Are there blooms to fall in love with where you live, too?
