I am so excited to have things to share with you this week! It seems I had things just ready to open for days and days and then they all bloomed at once.
This is an old fashioned spirea that came from the garden club sale a few years ago. I call it Bridal White, but I am not 100% sure. It is covered in blooms and now about 4 feet tall, I just love it.
The double Replete Daffodils I added last fall are blooming and I really love the soft creamy color of them. They are a bit top heavy, and flopped over after the big rains we got a few days ago, but they came back up. I think I got these at Wal-Mart?
You can see them as you come up the front walk. I hope they multiply quickly. I am thinking of all sorts of spots to use them.
This is a new plant I added this year, and just love it. It is ‘Jet Trails’ Flowering Quince. It is the softest white and very compact. I know I will have to chop it back for it to stay smaller, but worth it in my book for this much Spring color.
This is a shrub I would like anywhere. Sweet Flowering Almond, you are beautiful in every way. I can see this one from my back windows and of course, it is pink, which I cannot have enough of here.
This it the first time my very small Flowering Plum has bloomed. It has had a bit of a time in this spot, a past dog of our chewed on it right after planting…. but it has since had some care and it coming right along. I love its blooms and purple leaves.
Last but not least, my African Violets in the kitchen window look so pretty you would think they were artificial. I this is the 3rd time they have bloomed and I haven’t killed them yet. We might just have a winner.
What else is blooming? My two redbuds in the front yard, my creeping phlox, crocus, grape hyacinth, a few tulips, and my Heartleaf Bergenia or Pigsqueak is just about to bloom. I also have buds on a few clematises.
I have more things to share next week. But I will tell you I have been cheating and adding some new plants in my rose garden that I bought in bloom… lol. But hey, it still counts, doesn’t it?
