I know that posting a lot of flower closeups is the soft porn of garden blogging,* but I find that I’m not above it.

Thanks to Carol of  May Dreams Gardens for hosting Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day on the 15th of every month.  Click here and see what’s blooming in other climes.

This is my second post today.  “The Sunday porch” is here.
