Home Sweet Garden {4/28}

 Welcome dear friends to this weeks "Home Sweet Garden" party!
I hope you all had a great weekend and got lots of gardening done!
We have been busy with tennis season and girl stuff.
But not too busy to enjoy the blooms.
Like my white flowering quince shrub... so sweet!
I have been getting the rose garden ready.
Getting everything some support to handle the spring storms and wind.
After years I am learning my lesson and trying to protect these branches.
Can't wait to show you some blooms in a few weeks too!

Okay... lets see what other lovely shares we had this week!

I'm In Love.... with Red Tulips!

I'm in love....

With these wonderful Red Tulips.
They have been blooming like this for two weeks.
I started out with 6 bulbs three years ago.
And they have multiplied to 14.
But they looks so vibrant and pretty when you come up the drive.
I had crocuses here and early daffodils...
But I have to say these Red Tulips are my favorite.
I will be looking for more this fall.
Spring is such a happy time in the garden.
So much to enjoy and anticipate.
But I wanted to make sure to get lots of pics of these this year.
When everything starts blooming at once it is easy to forget to take pictures.
I want to say thank you to all who have already added their posts to 'Home Sweet Garden' this week.
If you haven't added a link yet... there is still time!
I will be starting the new party tomorrow afternoon and showcasing our features!

Old Fashioned Bridal Wreath Spirea

 Hello Dear Readers...  Happy Friday!
Today I am sharing a lovely Spring blooming shrub...
Old Fashioned Bridal Wreath Spirea.
It is a mass of white blooms for about two weeks every spring.
They are so delicate and tiny.... like miniature roses.
It is striking from a distance and it keeps a nice full shape.
 But it is the blooms that are so charming.
It is a good see-thru accent shrub.
And it makes a great backdrop for the pink magnolia blooms.
In the summer it is a nice full green backdrop.
Bridal Wreath Spirea is getting to be harder to find in nurseries.
But it is well worth the effort to search for it.

Mine is about 5 years old.
It was another small start from the garden club sale.
It was dug up from a local garden in my area.
I haven't tried to get a start from mine yet...
But I just might this fall.
