It's my favorite time in Spring when "Josephine" Clemantis is in bloom. With each passing day another layer of beauty unfolds within each flower. Eventually, right before she leaves, those center clusters will open like the last chorus of a beautiful hymn.
The spring quilts have made their way out of storage and are gracing walls and backs of chairs. The colors are so soothing and reflect the garden so well.
The Virburnum is a good eight feet tall by my back door. Oh how I love this time of year!
