The Farewell Tour

I did the farewell tour of the gardens this morning. Later today I will load up to head to the annual writing retreat I attend each year in McCall, Idaho. This is one of my favorite times of the year in the garden, so I tried to capture some images to remind me later of this June blooming time. The lavender is just beginning to bloom.

This late blooming iris was hidden in the shade. We definitely need to move it out where we can see it better next year.

The pink Iceberg,


Unforgettable, Livin' Easy,and Honey Perfume. I will miss the sweet fragrance of this gorgeous rose.


Isabelle walked the tour with me, but now is trying to convince me I need to stay home with her by giving me this look of distress. I am eager to spend a week on Payette Lake with other teachers and writers, but I will miss home and our gardens.

  5. You have written a word on an orange rose flower "unforgettable" but I think you must write this word on all the flowers because they are so pretty and lovely that I want them now.
