It has been about two and a half years since we dug over 20 lilies from the front of the house and replanted the area with a mix of small and large leaf rhododendrons, a Philadelphus lewisii or native mock orange, and many hyacinth bulbs.
The hyacinths bloomed a month or so ago.
Earlier this month the ‘Dora Amateis’ white rhodies bloomed, followed now by the vibrant ‘President Roosevelt’ rhodie.
Some of the dreaded lilies have returned, but the mock orange is sprawling wonderfully. I’m ready for its fragrant flowers next month.
