Spring growth

The wild and wonderful wisteria holds most of the blooms despite a couple of days of high winds.  Here they engulf the gazebo, even partially covering the entrance.

A slightly different colored wisteria frames the pergola over the path leading to the tea garden display.  This group flowers only occasionally.

This was a good year for this capricious cultivar.

The azalea at the front of the house produce this display every year.  This southern mainstay seems to thrive this far north.  We are thankful!

 Our forty-year old lilac bush grows higher every year and still shows well.  The deep red wine color doesn't show well in the setting sun, but is very distinctive and striking!
