Friday flowers

It’s flower Friday again! We can’t keep up with all the new blooms that emerge every week in the garden so here are the top ones.

Chives (Allium schoenoprasum): This puffball of a flower is not only lovely but it has a scent with a big kick to it.

Rhododendron: I have no idea of the species of this rhode but its flower is so different and more exotic than any of the others in our garden.

Mountain laurel (Kalmia latifolia): Flowering has just started on our mountain laurels. Flowers are plentiful as I have remembered each year to cut the spent blossoms after they go to seed.

Lupine (Lupinus): Started from seed last year, this plant made it through the winter. Let’s see if it can persist every year.

Comfrey (Symphytum officinale): Such a tiny delicate flower on such a huge plant. Insects swarm around its inverted bell.

Dogwood (Cornus Florida): Overlooked by many, the native dogwood gives off as good a display as any other flowering tree.

Amaryllis: Christmas in June?! No just one of the many bulbs we have brought up from the basement to flower and love.

Cornflower (Centaurea cyanus): This fun native is trying to keep its place in our patch of day lilies. It is not succeeding.

Iris: This flower is one of our favorites as its delicate pattern and shape is the very essence of a June flower.
