I have been gardening and not writing recently. Central Valley Garden Club started the summer tours today. We went to Vashon and Maury Islands, stopping at three nurseries and also the Point Defiance rose garden in Tacoma. I just love the colors in this hanging basket I did not buy.
And I also love the color of this California Lilac, which I am told is evergreen. If I would have had a spot for it, I would have bought it.
The rose garden is just beginning it’s first flush of the season. It will be in full bloom in a week or two. Here are some highlights.
The pink is ‘Augusta Louise’ and the yellow is ‘Golden Celebration’.
