This weekend there was a chill in the air and it seemed as though every sound could be heard. Living in the city it is rare that background noise ceases. As I was cutting back and weeding the air was filled with the fragrance of tuberose and ginger lily. The silence and smell made it a special day to be in the garden. Both the tuberose and ginger lily are blooming late this year...pics below.
The beauty berry shrub is loaded with berries. I cut it back hard this past winter and the new growth is lush.
The rose garden is in full bloom now--the last flush of the year. Here are four roses with the word 'black' in their name.
This weekends cut flowers and an arrangement.
