The grass is brown, but there are a few spots of color, and on this late spring evening I've been out appreciating what blooms there are.
Never let it be said that there is no true blue in nature. This clematis looks blue to me.
Stan's grandpa's old milk can and strainer are a good host for one of my favorites, calibrachoa, which I call a miniature petunia. I just love these dependable little pot plants and have them in several colors.
Another clematis grows near an old planting of lamb's ears.
Though they seem almost insignificant to my human eyes, the bees just adore the blooms on this old garden plant.
I don't have to ever think of pruning this honeysuckle. The horses think I put it here just for them to nibble on.
Oakleaf hydrangea perked up after an early morning shower of rain. They were so droopy just yesterday, pouting and unhappy with the dry conditions. Today is a new day!
The asiatics add a bold pop of color for a little while.
