7 Spring Blooms, Rain or Shine

Is it possible to plan a garden where flowers bloom steadily each week for six months? Truthfully, I wouldn’t have thought so, until we moved to Madison. That is what the previous gardener of the place where we live achieved. Her knowledge of Wisconsin perennials amazes me each year as I see the progression of greenery to blossom. Spring begins with shoots pressing up from orderly bulbs nestled in the ground. These flowers she chose need only sun and rain: maintenance free, dependable beauties. Thank you, Mrs. L. Your green thumb is verdant still.

  1. Continual blossoms has been one of my gardening goals that I think I have achieved. Leading off this year are crocuses that I planted in 2018 and followed by daffodils that began opening yesterday. But honestly nature will achieve the same with wild flowers. It will begin with colts foot the first blossoms I see in the spring followed by dandelions, then various others throughout the summer and end in the fall as freezing temperatures kill the golden rod and aster flowers. Your photos are beautiful.
