(this is a post from the Spring of 2015, what a difference! My garden has not one bloom started yet. Goes to show how one year can differ from the next in gardening)
What a beautiful sunny day we enjoyed today. It got near 80 degrees and I loved it. I have so much blooming in my garden and I know you are dying to see. So come along for a short little garden walk.
Here we have a Fritillaria, such an interesting color. This is the first year in a long while that this tall bloom did not get mashed by a late snow fall. It is actually upright and blooming quite cheerfully.
The grape hyacinths are a striking shade of blue, they are thicker than ever…
My creeping phlox forms a thick carpet on the hill by the roadside. It is tough as nails, this is very rocky soil here. The lavender has just about taken over the pink. You can just see a hint of the pink towards the back on the right.
I don’t remember planting these tiny little narcissus, they are so little…
For the longest time I thought these were snowdrops but I have learned that they are called Summer Snowflakes..
Remember I shared a daffodil last week from Ironstone and said I wanted to get some…well, I already have a few and did not even realize it. The spot where they are at now is not the best so as soon as they are done blooming I am going to move them.
Last but not least for this little garden tour is my sweet violets. In some areas these can be invasive but I don’t have any problems keeping them in line and the sweet perfume they emit is so delightful I enjoy walking among them anytime. They can form thick mats of color if you let them just go, they spread by runners as well as seed.
I have been trying to spend as much time in the garden as I can to get a jump start on keeping it tidy. I am not used to starting so early in the season, we can have a foot or two of snow on the ground this time of year, in fact most of these flowers are not usually blooming until late April here.
