Here in The Berks, it’s an odd bit of a season, somehow suspended in between Spring and Summer. March gave us 80 degree temps and a false start on the growing season, then April whacked us with stiff frosts. It felt unnatural, and hung a lot of local plants out to dry, so to speak.
Still, some of the heartier specimens have pulled through, like these irises in our dooryard:
…fronted by their neighboring Alliums.
The bumblebees are loving these guys, just as hummingbirds are digging the alliums. They’re a joy to watch on a warm evening, sitting on the porch and listening to the river run.
At any rate, that’s what’s happening just outside of my front door.
Thanks to Elliot for capturing it.
