Happy Spring Break! We’re spending our time in the backyard getting in touch with our inner blossoms. Our second sign of the season after snowdrops is Siberian Iris. They are tiny; no taller than your hand. Their colors are a regal purple and lilac purple.
After taking this picture I realized a mystery guest was at hand. We played hide and seek; if I don’t move you can’t see me, right?
I took three identical photos to make sure I caught her. Then she swiftly dashed away.
The gardener who lived in our house before us thought to plan a bloom for every week of the spring, summer and fall. I would love to have met her before she went to the great arboretum in the sky. Thank you, Barb; because of your tremendous planning early summer will bring Bleeding Heart.
We’ve received a good quantity of rain this last week. Plants rejoice.
Bluets are cheering on the Floribunda Rose to wake up. Will the roses bloom this year? I’ll take photos in June to let you know.
Crocus liberated from the Juniper Bush; Rebecca with the loppers. The Juniper liked the mild winter and grew six inches wider all around, covering two nearly blooming crocus and the foliage of two daffodil bulbs. I cut the evergreen’s bangs to reveal the beauty mark below.
Here’s a plant which will flower in the fall; Autumn Glory Seedum. I like how it looks once I trim back the dead flowers I’d left since November for “winter interest.”
What is your favorite spring flower?
