The flowers in the garden are spectacular this year. The wind and cold snap a few weeks ago did some damage: I can't find any buds on my butterfly bush, and the Korean lilacs are likewise bare, but the clematis and climbing roses have been spectacular; I need to get more support for the roses. The peonies have waited until this weekend to unfurl their massive blooms that I so love. Iris and phlox are still putting on a show, and for the first time in years, foxglove is blossoming in my garden; I hope it survives to next year.
