Last weekend’s tour of Harriet Tubman’s Maryland world started with some flowers and gardens in Delaware. I can never resist making pictures of the flowers I see. I store these pictures in files for my garden imagination, planning flowers that I will some day plant in my garden.
At Brandywine State Park, there were coneflowers.
At Winterthur, there were all sorts of hydrangeas.
The hostas were in full bloom, looking so very lovely with their stretching purple flowers in the shade of the woods.
The wisteria trained to grow around this shade trellis made me smile. This sort of project is years in the making.
Gardening encourages and then rewards patience, a lesson that always resonates with me.
