Six on Saturday #1

The Propagator is the host of Six on Saturday.  Head over there to see his Six and find links to the blogs of other participants.

Here are mine:

One Eryngium giganteum flower has ripened
Cercis canadensis ‘The Rising Sun’ is still quite small, but is already stunning.
A deep burgandy colored lily flower
Lilium div. 7: Oriental Hybrids ‘Merlot’ obligingly opened this morning
Salvia ‘Amistad’ purchased last year at the NCSU Arboretum is already blooming
Sambucus nigra (elder) flowers are forming
As various birbs run through the Baba Yaga Elder bed, The Skulls of Men are frequently rearranged. Serendipitously, this skull sniffs at an Echinacea purpurea flower that is forming
