Here’s the Derby Garden when I blogged about it on March 26th.
Here it was on Sunday. It’s greened up beautifully. I’m sure that it’s at an even different stage now, a few days later.
I love these old chimneys. Maintaining them here on the waterfront is probably quite challenging. This was taken by my littlest girl. We girls were out for a ride. Aren’t these tulips great? Donna Seger at Streets of Salem posted a photo of them in bloom on May Day and I was sure that I was going to miss them. I was so happy to see that they were still going strong on Sunday. Beautiful peach columbine, coming into bloom.I’m not sure about this plant’s identity… does anyone know what it is? Let us know!
Before the garden we stopped at the beach for a few minutes. It was windy and cold but still a nice little break in the busy weekend. Sorry, no kid pictures… girls don’t always want to be photographed. That’s okay, neither do I.
I thought that the view might make you smile 🙂
Summer is coming~

Beautiful flowers AND the beach. Wow – you’re living right! 🙂
We sure are Judy! I’m thankful for that every day.
I think your mystery plant is pasque flower, but not sure.
Yes I think it is! It’s also called pulsatilla and is made into a very commonly used homeopathic remedy (not to be confused with a herbal remedy, don’t “use” it yourself, it’s reduced into a minute portion for homeopathic use, but that’s another story).. Thanks for your help in identifying!
Pasque flower/pulsatilla, great to know! The Derby garden is very special to me as I was proposed to there–it’s my perfect Salem space.
The very last photo is a new favorite!
