I don't think I planned it intentionally but I seem to have a lot of white flowers in the garden as it transitions from May to June. It's nothing like Vita Sackville-West's famous white garden at Sissinghurst, and yet there are little hidden gardens here and there mainly composed of whites — and green, of course.
Malus sargentii 'Tina'
Rhododendron yedoense poukhanense 'Alba'
Convallaria majalis 'Hardwick Hall' with large leaves edged in gold
Trillium grandiflorum a week ago.
You can just glimpse the Trillium still going strong behind this clump of Dodecatheon media.
The daffs bow out: Narcissus 'Dreamlight'
Primula sieboldii with red candelabra Primroses and a Digitalis pushing forward.
Tiarella cordifolia 'Running Tapestry' edging Toad lilies, Cimicifuga, Hosta and a fern.
A great year for Clematis 'Guernsey Cream'
Our neighbor's Kiwi vine has colonized the fence between our gardens.
The Silverbell tree (Halesia tetraptera) has charming blooms which make a spring snowstorm when they fall, a sure sign that June is almost here.
