Due to the warm weather our tortoise shell rhodo has made an early appearance.
It was the same size as the white one in the foreground when we bought both about fifteen years ago. They were half price in Wyevale as the buds had frost damage. A few years ago I pruned off some of the front branches as it overhung the lawn too much.
The wisteria on the fence looks better for my having stripped off the dying blooms last night.
The giant lilies are doing well. We've over a dozen along the length of the side fence. The two rhodos in front of these will need some dead-heading by Sunday.
Clematis are blooming.
one of two jackamani that got removed, rehomed and still more of the vigorous plant roots remained.

honeysuckle…it blooms all summer into fall
Have moved lots of lavender and pink deadnettle as I continue removing/transplanting/rehoming a woodland garden.
A strange hundred year old rose. I’ve moved it three times over 40 years. I got it from a rental when they had to replace the house foundation and it moved with me years ago. It has large white buds that never open And the nastiest of thorns ever. I moved a jackamani clematis to its base last fall. Am interested to see how they get along.
A few varieties of peonies from a bag of five roots I got several years ago. Sure have to be patient to garden. This is the first year they are all blooming and smell good.
