Seems all we've had lately has been rainy, cold weather. But things are moving along in our garden regardless, so that I feel the need to share.....
The bluebells (hyacinthoides) are blooming in the Moongarden. I thought I had ordered a mix of blue, white and pink. But they're all blue.
I don't mind.
Sweet Woodruff (Galium odoratum) always looks nice during the growing season, with white blooms in the spring. This plant does great in our garden and I love it as a ground cover since it isn't too invasive. My friend Teresa told me about using it in a May wine recipe and I may just try it this year. (Although it will more likely be a "June" or "July" wine.)
These Mountain Bluet (centaurea montana) are blooming all over the garden since they re-seed a lot. I like them for their spring color but the foliage gets tatty looking later in the year. I usually try to cut them back when that happens.
I like this Amethyst in Snow version I bought a while back but I need to move it out from under the rose that is threatening it.
Another great ground cover is Snow in Summer (Cerastium tomentosum). It too likes to spread but who can resist it's cheerfulness? This plant enjoys full sun and doesn't need a lot of water so it also does well on mounds.
And of course Soapwort (saponaria ocymoides).
Our viburnum is blooming.
This shrub took a while to get going but I just love the flowers.
We're still seeing Indigo Buntings around. It would be great if they stayed for the summer.
And this lone quail made itself welcome at our birdblock.
Two more pics. (I know this is a long post.)
Kim took this picture without my knowledge. We're enjoying the back deck.
And from our back porch you can see that back deck in the upper left corner.
OK, that's it. I think I'll go check some of my favorite blogs now and see what you've all been up to.
Oh, I think I found out what killed my roses........here.
