In Which I Groove On Racemes
I'm on the hunt for this over the weekend.
Virginia Sweetspire. Itea virginica. The ideal summer shrub. Drooping, deliciously fragrant racemes (those cylindrical flowers) lure pollen-drunk bees during the month of June.
Their bzzzzz's will go with the lazy summer-day zzzzz's I hope to catch on a blanket in our garden.
Oh, yes. And the Sweetspire's fall show is nothing to sniff at . . .
When I'm not searching high and low for Itea virginica, I will be out there weeding, weeding and weeding, as the days of rain have left us with a jungle on our hands.
