|I have several dozen clumps of Agapanthus like this one so you know I'm not kidding about the imminent arrival of a legion of blooms|
I thought the Agapanthus were a bit early this year but, looking back at prior posts (like the one here), I found that, at best, we're about a week ahead of schedule.
Other summer bloomers are on their way as well.
|Gaillardia 'Arizona Sun' (and a snail that I didn't see until I took a close look at this photo - the raccoons are falling down on their one and only non-destructive job!)|
|The Shasta daisies (Leucanthemum x superbum) also are full of buds - here's one of the first to bloom|
|And the Magnolia grandiflora is already producing blooms, to the delight of the bees|
The pink evening primroses (Oenothera speciosa) have already arrived. I'm not sure how long the flowers will last but they deserve a moment in the spotlight this week as well.
|Pink evening primrose has a reputation for being invasive in some areas but in my garden it mingles companionably with other plants, which here includes weedy Centranthus ruber and succulent Oscularia deltoides|
I'm offering these coming attractions as my Wednesday Vignette. Visit Anna at Flutter & Hum to find the images that grabbed her attention and that of other gardeners this week.
