I used to live on Long Island, and go back their often to visit friends.....and their gardens.
I've often written and photographed The Jarvis house my friend Lori's place. I always wander about imagining what I could swipe if I still had a garden and lived near by.
Yesterday, I just took pictures.....of the hydrangea
a dandilion, that bane of people who think lawns have to be perfect,
and are quite certain to drive themselves crazy or poison themselves with chemicals, are splendid and a valuable addition to the landscape.
Ah! Apple blossom
and a slightly past it hyacinth amidst the wild geranium.
Apple petals in the hosta
and the azeleas in the almost woodland.May is arguably the prettiest month of all on the Island.
ps:For the most amazing photos of the Easter bonnets in New York, go to my friend Susanna Gordon's blog here. To my mind she's the best photographer in Blogland.
