A Year in Flowers, Week 19: Gwynne Vaughn Park

Although many rhododendrons in the park are blooming, my favourite blossoms are the dogwood and the wisteria and these were my subjects during early morning and evening garden walks this past week:

“There is much to be said for cherry blossoms, but they seem so flighty. They are quick to run off and leave you. And then just when your regrets are the strongest the wisteria comes into bloom, and it blooms on into the summer. There is nothing quite like it. Even the color is somehow companionable and inviting.”
