And how about a brief tour of other blooming trees on campus? The school year is over--goes faster and faster each year--so bloom on, you crazy trees. Bloom on my lovely students who will now pass by on the sidewalk and not acknowledge me, not remember all that we shared. Ah, lost love (on my part alone, most likely).
Here on the homestead the serviceberries are done, but the the crabapples are in full swing, as is the chokecherry. Soon the viburnums and dogwood will kick in, then the ninebark and elderberries. And before you know it, hundreds of people will be inspecting my garden for weeds. Any garden tour tips from my gardening elders out there?
The tour is on Father's Day, and I plan to have a local sculptor display his work, and I'll have lines from my poems scattered throughout the garden. Hopefully, monarch caterpillars will also be in full swing.
