It's easy to forget about foliage in this time of rampant flowering. I thought I'd stroll the garden and find great examples of fresh foliage still unfettered by four-lined plant bugs and meandering leaf miners.
Angelica gigas has wine-color veins and sharp serration
The slightly twisty blades of Allium tanguticum
A delicate heart-shaped leaf of Cercis canadensis 'Northern Strain' redbud
One of two uninvited Verbascul bombicyferum, mulleins allowed in garden
Like fluttery curled wings on Dwarf Ginkgo 'Jade Butterfly'
Soft fuzzy lambs ears, Stachys byzantina 'Helen Von Stein'
Blue green spears of Helictotrichon Blue Oat Grass 'Sapphire'
