ANOTHER WEEKEND has come and gone. Doesn't the time just whiz by? It seems like there's never enough hours in my week. Between indoor tasks, I was able to get a few things done in the garden. Usually the lilacs are in bloom by April 15th but they're late this year. Here are some of the happy plants among the throng of emerging wonders.
|Bergenia cordifolia in bloom|
|Oxalis crassipes just starting to bloom|
|Oxalis 'Sunset Velvet' (I think)|
|Hebe 'Pink Elephant'|
I had the most difficult time getting this plant established but now, it's finally growing and happy!
|The yellow flowers of Leopard's Bane or Doronicum orientale are not my favorite |
but it blooms faithfully this time of year so I let it be.
|I bought this Helichrysum (Strawflower) on sale last summer. |
It wintered over in a hanging basket and is blooming. Cool, huh?
|The flowers of Evergreen Huckleberry (Vaccinum ovatum) are about to open.|
The bumblebees love them.
|I've got a Vinca minor plant in a hanging container. It's blooming.|
|Finally, a photo of Disco, my youngest daughter's |
I hope your garden is making you happy!
