Here's what's new blooming in the vegetable garden. The first zucchini blossoms.The first sunflower, a volunteer. Almost all the tomatoes are blooming. Many of the heirlooms seem to start with a funny double or triple blossom.
A Scarlet Runner Bean which is climbing the tomato trellis The first female buttercup squash. My carrots that I wintered over and moved are going to seed. They look just like queen anne's lace. The pink flowers are from the purple haze hybrid carrots. In the front perennial garden the lavender is in full bloom. And yesterday this self seeded volunteer started blooming all over in the semi-shaded part of the garden. It is only 4 to 6 inches tall, and has feathery foliage. A google image search tells me it may be Nigella, though some of the results have more petals than mine do and the descriptions say they are much taller.
