This mock orange bush in full bloom yesterday when I walked by it sent a rush of memories to me of my Grandparent's garden. They lived in the town that I grew up in Sleepy Eye, Minnesota and they had the largest garden. Some things that I loved about this garden were the stepping stones that we got to hop from foot to foot to keep the fresh tilled soil ready for planting. They also had this amazing bush, a mock orange that created a lovely fragrance. A person needs to come up close to take in the fragrance. It is not as fragrant as a lilac.
I'm also back in my studio and looking at things to create next. Check out the Ancestry Art Works
to take a look a some old pictures of my grandparents that I incorporated into quilts.
Here's the mock orange bush at its full height and beginning to rain down some petals. These beauties won't be out long. Hope you get a chance to find one in your neighborhood.
Flowers are blooming. These next couple of pictures, I don't have an identification, but I like them all the same.
This blue wild indigo grows in my yard.
Happy exploring the neighborhoods. Let me know what you find on your walks.
