Lilacs, Lupines, and Light

We had a lovely break in the rain clouds today, so I was able to get out in the gardens to enjoy the beauty that all this rain has produced.

The ancient lilac is in full form right now with amazing bunches of light violet flowers.




The flower stalks on the Lupines are starting to form. I'm very excited about finally having some Lupines in the garden -- mostly due to being a fan of Monty Python and their very funny sketch about Lupines!


The Cherokee Princess dogwood is also starting to bloom and to recover it's form. The previous winter the heavy snow caused the shrubs in back of it to press on top and snap off a couple of it's branches.


This is the view looking towards the Carriage House from the pool area. I love this new view now that the overgrown Hemlocks are gone!


The creek that runs through the property is rushing merrily along, but has stayed nicely within it's bounds.
