Images from Judy's Garden on the First of June

This past week, the flowers in Judy's rock garden have begun to fully bloom. It has been warm and sunny until yesterday evening, when it clouded over and started raining lightly. The breezes last week discouraged closeup pictures, but they died with the advent of the rain.

Below are some Shooting Stars.

The Columbines are just beginning to come out. We'll probably have thousands of them. This is the best series of Columbine images I've ever been able to shoot.

This plant is about 15 years old.

Chocolate Lilies, just beginning to form flowers.

Judy has a lovely selection of colors in her colombines.
They are ahead of mine which are just now putting up bloom stalks.
Chocolate lilies ahead of mine too...
Funny how your slightly longer days and overall warmer days push your garden ahead of mine in Southeast in such a short time.
The yellow flowering plant looks like an auricula primrose. I have dozens of those in different colors all in bloom now. Smell wonderful!
Thank you for sharing!

I still don't know how you do all that you folks do. But the garden is always fantastic.
And my chocolate lilies are up, but don't even have buds showing yet here in Anchorage.
