You may recall, I posted about the Lan Su Chinese Garden before. I said that I hardly ever go–because I have a yearly membership, which means I can go any time I want. Hmmm. That doesn’t make sense, does it?
And it’s not true. Now that I’m driving myself around town, apparently I stop more frequently.
My Fringe Flower at home is blooming as well. I inherited this plant–having killed two others in my former garden. Shhhh. Don’t tell it.
Lan Su Chinese Garden is beautiful from every angle.
Peonies galore. I meant to identify from their master list, but there are so many of them–and I’m a little challenged at figuring out their planting map.
And look at the height of that Iris confusa ‘Martyn Rix’.
A veritable riot of Iris confusa ‘Martyn Rix’. (Tim Vojt, yes, you need this.)
The Acorus in the photo below is in my garden. How did I never look closely at the bloom? Loving it.
I need Asarum splendens. How gorgeous is this?
And a wider angle.
I’d be remiss in not showing the Bigleaf Rhodie–not a perfect shot. But you get the idea. COOL.
The May Apples were looking fabulous in spite of uncooperative light conditions. I have a couple plants at home. Last year they didn’t do much. This year, getting bold–and does that ever make me happy.
Lan Su Chinese Garden. Visit soon. Visit often. And then off to Happy Hour.
Mixed baby greens with balsamic dressing, sauteed mushrooms, and oven roasted artichoke hearts–with an inexpensive rosé from Trader Joe’s, because it’s spring.
