More Photos from Friday Morning at the Big House

Today is a "work day" in the Stepchild Garden, so I thought I'd get these photos posted early.  They are things that Chuck shot early Friday morning while walking around the garden at the Big House.  I think many of them demonstrate the magic of nature with very little help from us.  Here, agapanthus is just starting to break into bud.
In the walled garden, two types of allium have opened, with many others to follow.
Amethyst Fallsl Wisteria is beautiful even before the flowers open!
Spanish Bluebells are waning, but still look pretty great in the early morning sun.
Is there anything more beautiful than delphinium? 
I hope you have an incredible day in your garden!


  1. Beautiful - how long do those delphiniums last? I didn't think they would tolerate our hot temperatures. I agree that the wisteria is just as lovely with the buds. I noticed them on mine a few days ago.

  2. The delphinium was put in the ground in mid-March, and I'm going to see if it will last until next year. Will keep you posted. These are in an area that gets good sun, but only for a few hours a day.

  3. I love how allium progresses as it opens. I meant to take a photo of mine earlier, but got distracted.
