In Bloom

We bought this house from an elderly woman who had been here about 50 years and must have been a world class gardener. When we took possession of the place, the property was almost entirely overrun with planter boxes and other free-roaming greenery, with some really beautiful and exotic specimens thrown into the mix.

And even though I think the former owner would keel over if she ever came back and saw how much we have ripped out to make room for sod, swing sets and soccer goals, I have to say we really do appreciate the amount of naturally-occurring color she left behind for us.

Here's a small sampling of the plants that are currently in bloom and suitable for framing on Memorial Day, 2007.
