In bloom today: from the rock garden

There is so much in bloom here right now that I thought I would concentrate on my husband John's rock garden, which is looking very pretty indeed.

These tulips, which I believe are Tulipa batalinii 'Bronze Charm' are just stunning.

This most stunning, unearthly blue is Gentiana acaulis; behind it, Erigeron compositus. I swear I did nothing to the saturation in Photoshop. These plants have the most amazing color.

  2. This is such a beautiful garden Yvonne! Your husband has done a wonderful job! It must be such a joy to go out and enjoy all that work!

  3. Wow, those Gentians are stunning!

  4. The bronze tulips are very pretty, I don't think I've seen that color before. Very nice.
