This pretty yellow Evening Primrose is blooming in my garden! Yellow is such a cheerful color, don't you think?
And the Baptisia Australis or Blue False Indigo is in bloom! This plant has the neatest seed pods when the blue flowers are gone. The pods look sort of like sugar snap peas!
And mom's favorite - the poppy - and this one just happens to be salmon! A few of the lupines are still blooming but many of them are on their way out!
This is Connecticut's state flower - the beautiful Mountain Laurel! This one just happens to be a wild one that someone dug out of their yard and gave to us.
This one is a cultivated one that mom bought at Broken Arrow Nursery a few years ago. This nursery specializes in Mountain Laurel and it's such a treat to visit and see them all in bloom at the same time!
Guess what? I got to sit on Uncle Mike's Indian Chief! I wonder if he'll take me for a ride on it!
What time shall we swing by and pick you up?!
