My yellow DAE (Graham Stewarts?) continue to bloom with plump round petals. And the New Dawn climbers are in the middle of a clotted run of blooms, opening a pale pink that fades to white. The other roses are most over for now, but the hydrangeas with their modest white blooms are mostly open-- the blooms will eventually fade to green and then to brown. The oak leaf hydrangeas with their cone shaped blossoms are also opening -- these white blooms will fade to pink edges.

And the zagreb coreopsis is starting to open up.

Already, as Franklin the dog and I wander the garden in the mornings, I am thinking of what was and what is coming. Our temperatures continue to be mild.
