Today we’re revisiting Lena White’s North Carolina garden.
I submitted photos of my spring favorites (Spring in Lena’s Garden), and summer has brought lots of heat to North Carolina as well as many other parts of the country. Even so, there’s been lots of early morning gardening and lots of color and joy, for which I am most grateful.

This birdbath was made with an upside-down terra-cotta pot, an old table leg, and a porcelain bowl.
Stargazer lily (Lilium ‘Stargazer’, Zones 4–9) has an amazing sweet-smelling fragrance.
A beautiful mass of caladiums (Caladium, Zones 9–11 or as a tender bulb), each with different patterns and colors. A few coleus (Solenostemon scutellarioides, Zones 10–11 or as an annual) add to the diversity of color.
Just one day’s harvest from the raised vegetable beds.
