Well, it begins…. After six months away from the beach garden, we returned in late April to begin anew. This will be the fourth year since the great salt water inundation by Superstorm Sandy, and already Richard and I have been surprised by the vigor we are seeing on every side.
There are some things, of course, that only bloom in spring – Lily of the Valley, Wisteria, Buttercups – so even though the deck planters are still being planted (impatiens should be put out in this area this week), I’m posting this snapshot as of May 21. Our oceanic micro-climate keeps the air cool well into June, which explains the late bloomers, but the temperatures catch up quickly so that, compared to most places, it’s a “fast forward” display.
Here are the first few frames of 2016. I hope you enjoy!
