It's beginning to look a bit summery with the first hints of crapemyrtle blooms popping up here and there. I was too busy to get out much this week but here's what I did see. By the way, I should have included lots of pics of hydrangea blooms, but I'm sure they'll still be around next week.
At my friends Kim and Loren's house: oakleaf hydrangea
purple water iris,
and powdery thalia.
In Colonial Williamsburg: the first whorled rosinweed bloom of the season,
and some tyical season plants, coleus and impatiens.
At the Williamsburg Library native plant garden: white baptisia,
skullcap, butterfly weed,
Things I saw while out and about: dogwood (Cornus amomum perhaps?)
